A court ruling striking down part of Missouri’s Voter ID requirement could cause problems for county clerks in charge of preparing for the November election. Camden County Clerk Rowland Todd says the ruling will have an impact on the way they conduct business, and that could start in the very near future.
Normally, voters with no photo ID can still vote by showing another form of identification and signing an affidavit. The court ruling says that’s no longer acceptable. The Secretary of State has asked for a stay on the ruling while it’s appealed to a higher level. In the meantime Todd says they’ll still ask for a photo ID but will also allow voters to cast a ballot with another form of identification, such as their voter registration card.
