Missouri House passes voter photo ID

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Republican-led Missouri House has passed another bill to require voter photo identification at the polls.

Lawmakers voted 109-46 in favor of the legislation.

The bill is aimed at addressing a Missouri Supreme Court ruling last year that permanently blocked a central provision of a 2016 voter ID law.

That law required voters without a photo ID to make a sworn statement to cast a regular ballot.

The new bill would give voters two options: either show a photo ID to cast a regular ballot or cast a provisional ballot.
