One of the proposals before Missouri's 1996 legislative session would restrict when elections could be held in the state to just three times -- April, August and November.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. David Levin, R-St. Louis County, says reducing the number of dates when elections would be held would help improve voter turnout.
