Missouri Voter Identification Amendment (2010)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
At the time, in 2010, Missourians were required to provide identification before casting a ballot, however, the form of identification was not required to include a photo id or be a government issued form of identification.
In 2006 the Missouri Supreme Court struck down a voter photo ID law on the basis that it violated the state constitution. According to the court ruling the requirement imposed too great of a burden on voting rights.
Path to the ballot
In order to qualify for the ballot, the measure required approval from both the House and the Senate. On April 20, 2010 the House voted 85-64 in favor of placing a voter identification amendment on the 2010 ballot. However, the measure did not garner the required legislative approval as of May 14, 2010, the end of the 2010 legislative session.
