Take Action: Photo ID Passes MO House

To Missouri Voter Protection Advocates,

After many hours of contentious debate over several days this week, the Missouri House of Representatives passed HB1104, which would require non-expired, state-issued photo ID to vote.

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Shane Schoeller, passed the House by a vote 101 to 54. It now heads to the Senate. The vote split on party lines.

A companion bill in the Senate, SB442, sponsored by Sen. Stouffer, passed out of a senate committee but has not had a floor vote.

Please tell your senator that the League of Women Voters opposes any proposal that might suppress voting, particularly a mandated state-issued photo ID requirement that would disenfranchise 250,000 Missouri voters who lack a current state ID.
