Voter ID Law May Return

Republicans in the state legislature are pushing forward with another effort to require voters to show ID at the polls. A Missouri Senate committee listened to testimony today about a resolution to amend the state constitution to require photo identification. Everyone who testified was opposed to the amendment. The state passed a photo ID law in 2006 but it was ruled unconstitutional by the state Supreme Court. Governor Jay Nixon vetoed another effort to implement the law in 2011.
