Missouri Voter ID

July 21, 2020

State constitutional challenge to Missouri’s newly-enacted voter ID law. The law imposed new restrictions on voters who lacked photo ID by requiring them to execute an inaccurate and misleading affidavit, stating among other things that photo ID was required by law, in order to cast a regular ballot. The Missouri Supreme Court ruled that Missouri’s voter ID law’s affidavit requirement was misleading and contradictory, and unconstitutional.
