Missouri Legislature Passes Bills to Undercut Fundamental Right to Vote

Advancement Project

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - Today, the Missouri Legislature took the final step in a direct attack on the right to vote by passing a photo ID requirement, known as H.B. 1631 and a ballot resolution, H.J.R. 53, which will undercut the state’s constitutional right to vote if passed by voters later this year. The measures equate to a full-force attack on the voting rights of Missourians – especially voters of color, who face disproportionate barriers to acquiring photo ID.
