Nixon Sefs Photo ID Vote for November

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has placed the proposed constitutional amendment requiring a photo ID to vote on the Noevember ballot.
The Governor has the discretion where to schedule a vote.
Nixon, in the past, has said he wanted a measure like this voted on by as many registered voters as possible.
Previously, Nixon has said he did not like the concept of a photo ID requirement to vote.
His statement Monday setting the November election dates had no comment from him.
There is another bill passed by lawmakers that deals with photo ID voting.
The bill requires a photo ID.
Otherwise, a potential voter must sign a statement, under the penalty of perjury, that they have no photo ID –at all.
Then that voter is permitted to cast a ballot.
Another provision of the bill says the state would pay to assure that person has a photo ID.
That law is moot if the constitutional amendment fails at the polls.
