BREAKING: Photo ID Headed to the Ballot

House Joint Resolution 53, the resolution that would amend our state constitution to make way for extreme Photo ID requirements at the polls, is now headed to a statewide ballot.

Let that sink in for a moment: our own elected leaders, voting along party lines, moved to change our state constitution to make it harder for hundreds of thousands of us to vote.

That’s right, it’s “us”—pretty much anyone could have trouble casting a ballot under the bill—women, minorities, students, seniors, folks who recently moved, and people who don’t drive.

This constitutional amendment will now appear on our ballots in either August or November, pending Governor Nixon’s designation. We hope you’ll join us by signing your name TODAY and pledging to stand with us as we fight this extreme measure.
