Missouri Supreme Court Upholds Ruling That Part of Voter ID Law Violates State Constitution

From the conclusion of today’s opinion in Priorities USA v. State of Missouri:

Because the affidavit requirement of sections 115.427.2(1) and 115.427.3 is misleading and contradictory, the circuit court’s judgment declaring the affidavit requirement unconstitutional is affirmed. Further, the circuit court did not err in enjoining the State from requiring individuals who vote under the non-photo identification option provided in section 115.427.2(1) to execute the affidavit or in enjoining it from disseminating materials indicating photo identification is required to vote. The circuit court’s judgment is affirmed
