Supreme Court Kicks Missouri Voter Photo I.D. Law to the Curb

(Jefferson City) The Missouri Supreme Court today ruled against a state voter photo I.D. law.

In 2016 Missouri voters allowed lawmakers to toughen requirements at polling places.

Legislators added photo I.D. or a signed sworn statement regardless of the voter registration.

Now, the Missouri Secretary of State cannot publish photo I.D. requirements or require an affidavit.

The winning side in this case, Priorities USA, an advocacy group out of Washington, D.C., argued the new law would disenfranchise 220-thousand voters.
