Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft begins voter ID information tour

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft began his statewide Voter Identification Information tour in Maryville yesterday afternoon.

Missouri voters in November approved an amendment requiring a photo ID before a voter can cast a ballot in Missouri. Photo ID requirements have been criticized as a way to limit voter participation among minorities and the poor who may not have a photo ID. Ashcroft, a Republican, says he believes the Missouri law addresses those concerns with three ways voters can cast a ballot.

Ashcroft urges people who need a photo ID to contact his office or their local County Clerk's office for information on how to obtain their photo ID.
