Ashcroft Launches Missouri’s New Voter ID Law

Jefferson City, Mo. — On Monday June 1st, Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft announced Missouri’s new voter ID law is now in effect. This law outlines the appropriate identification that is required at the polling locations.

There are 3 options, which are as follows:

Option 1: Provide a Missouri issued Driver or Non-Driver license, U.S. Passport, or Military ID

Option 2: Provide a secondary form of identification, such as a paycheck or bank statement and sign a statement confirming their identity

Option 3: If the voter has no form of identification, but is a registered voter, they may cast a provisional ballot

Missouri’s photo voter ID law also requires the state of Missouri to assist voters who might not have a photo ID   with the process of obtaining one free Missouri non-driver license for the purpose of voting. Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft asked voters who do not have a photo ID to vote to call the Show It 2 Vote Hotline at 866-868-3245.
