Missouri voters say no to mandatory health insurance - CNN.com

Missouri's Proposition C allowed voters to decide if residents should be allowed to opt out of mandatory health insurance, a key part of the administration's health care plan.

The measure succeeded handily, winning by a three-to-one margin to allow residents to opt out.
Ahead of the vote, Mason-Dixon pollster Brad Coker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he expected the proposition to pass because of an anticipated heavier Republican turnout. However, he also expects a court challenge.

Some states have already passed similar legislation, but this was the first test at the ballot box.
