Senate Bill 3 established guidelines for voter ID regulations in Missouri. Its companion legislation, Senate Joint Resolution 2, would have put the proposal on the Missouri ballot in November 2012. Also included in SB 3 was legislation that would have allowed early voting in Missouri.
"A lot of us put months of effort into crafting this bill to include various issues in the state, including early voting provisions," Stouffer said. "Now, all of this hard work has been tossed aside by a single action. I'm hoping the Legislature will vote to override this veto when the Missouri General Assembly meets for veto session in September."
