JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri voters will get to decide a proposed amendment to the state Constitution that could change the requirements for voting in future elections.
Lawmakers gave final approval Monday to a measure that would authorize a law requiring registered voters to show a government-issued photo identification before casting ballots. It would also allow for an advance voting period before Election Day.
The two-prong measure will appear on the 2012 ballot.
Legislators approved a voter ID requirement in 2006, but the Missouri Supreme Court struck it down as unconstitutional. This year's measure is intended to address that issue.
Voter measures are SJR2.
