Missouri House passes new voter photo ID bill

State lawmakers are trying to pass another voter photo ID law.

Judges last year permanently blocked a measure in the 2016 law, requiring voters without a photo ID to make a sworn statement in order to cast a ballot.

State Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch, a Hallsville Republican, says on The Gary Nolan Show the measure that passed in the House on Wednesday should hold up.

“We think this will pass the [Missouri] Supreme Court if it’s challenged again because this will now meet all of the things they were concerned about.”

The new bill would give voters two options: either show a photo ID to cast a regular ballot, or cast a provisional ballot. It needs Missouri Senate approval next.
