Under the language that would go into effect upon voter approval, voters without an ID will be able to sign a form saying that they don’t have an ID, are who they claim to be, and recognize that voter ID is the law of the land.
If they decline to sign the form, they could cast a provisional ballot; the vote would count if the person could later prove their identity.
The state would also pay for IDs and source documents needed to obtain them. If the state did not appropriate money in any given year, the requirements would not be in effect.
Election integrity continues to be the driving force behind voter ID and generally speaking, the public overwhelmingly favors the laws. Republican representatives also addressed the continued doomsday rhetoric from the left:
It is likely that in November voters in Missouri will have a say in the integrity of their elections due in no small part to the dedication of their own elected officials.
