The Senate has started debate on legislation to reform the administration of Missouri’s elections. Senator Delbert Scott of Lowry City sponsors an effort to restore confidence in the voting system. The major component of the legislation is a requirement that photo ID be presented by those registering to vote or showing up at polling stations. Under Scott’s bill, those who do not have a driver’s license or other photo identification card and who cannot afford to pay for a photo ID would be provided one free of charge. In addition, the state would send officials to retirement homes and other residences in which people might be immobile and unable to visit a Revenue Department fee office to be photographed. No action was taken. Debate could resume next week.
