Missouri House overwhelmingly passes Voter ID measures

The Missouri House passed two measures Thursday that would make Missouri the 32nd state to actively require some sort of identification to vote.”


HJR1, a constitutional amendment requiring voter approval, allows the state to adopt a photo voter ID requirement, and HB30 spells out implementation details, including providing for free state IDs and free birth certificates as needed.


“The Joint Resolution passed by a vote of 118-39 and the House bill passed by a 118-37 margin.”
