Missouri City voters were asked whether they support nine amendments to the city's charter during the May 1 election.

With both Fort Bend and Harris counties reporting early voting returns, each of the nine amendments have garnered more than 50% support.

The city's charter outlines how the city's government is structured and contains its rules and procedures.

Two of proposed changes would extend the term length for City Council members from two to three years and limit a council member to 12 consecutive years before a two-year sit out period, if passed.

The following table contains the ballot text and a brief explanation of each amendment.
