Missouri Voter I.D. Amendment (2014)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
Efforts to pass a voter I.D. law in Missouri were given up following legislative negotiations between Democrats and Republicans. In exchange for Republicans backing off of this voter I.D. measure and another requiring public-sector unions to get annual written authorization to deduct dues or fees from paychecks, Democrats allowed an abortion waiting period measure and an early voting measure to pass.
Sen. Will Kraus was the sponsor of the measure.

At the time of SJR 31's introduction, either chamber of the Missouri General Assembly was allowed to propose an amendment. A majority of members of both chambers were required to approve it in order to place it on a statewide ballot for a popular vote of the people. SJR 31 was not approved by either chamber before the end of the 2014 legislative session.
