Ashcroft Denounces Deplorable Voter ID Misinformation Campaign



Jefferson City, Mo. — Today, a group opposed to Missouri's voter-approved photo voter ID law launched a misinformation campaign and held press events across Missouri to intentionally mislead and confuse voters about Missouri's new voter ID law. In their statement, the group said the new law would make it "harder" and "more confusing" to vote. Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft issued the following statement:

"I am shocked and appalled by the misinformation campaign being run by these opponents of Missouri's voter ID law," Ashcroft said. "Their efforts are deplorable and intentionally designed to confuse and mislead Missourians just as we are beginning a statewide public education campaign. Missouri's voter ID law will not disenfranchise a single voter. Bottom line, if you're registered to vote, you can vote -- despite the misinformation that was shared today."

Ashcroft is set to announce a statewide public education campaign tomorrow, June 1, as the law takes effect. The effort will include a statewide media campaign with informational events across the state.

It couldn't be harder and more confusing than the streetcar extension vote. But it's a lot easier than the new airport vote.
