LWV speaks out against MO voter ID proposal

“The first thing we need to understand is that having laws requiring a government-issued ID can only prevent in-person voter impersonation — when someone shows up at a particular precinct claiming to be someone else also registered in that same precinct. Studies show that this type of fraud is rare to non-existent. This may be because there are already very clear laws with very severe consequences for voting fraud in the books, as well there should be. Under federal law, voter impersonation is punishable by up to five years in prison and $10,000 fines.”
