Well, kudos should go out to our state legislators for doing the next best thing . . . the House of Representatives has already passed a bill that would place a proposed amendment to the Missouri Constitution on November's ballot that would require photo identification in all future elections. The measure has also passed through a state Senate committee, which recommended passage, and should be taken up by the full Senate very soon.
Here's hoping that this common sense amendment makes it to Governor Blunt's desk, onto the ballot, and into the constitution.
