Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft was in Shelbina Tuesday morning talking about Missouri’s new voter ID law.

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Fifth District Representative Lindell Shumake were at the Shelbina City Hall Tuesday morning talking about the new Voter ID law in the State of Missouri.
   The law, which went into effect on June 1, gives voters options to use on election day at their polling places. “What we want you to know is, first and foremost, if you are a registered Missouri voter, you can vote. We would like you to use a government issued photo ID, but if you don’t have it, you can still use one of the other forms of identification that you were allowed to use before this law went into effect.,” Ashcroft explained. He added that the individual would have to sign a statement saying that the state has requested the voter use a government issued photo ID, and that the person doesn’t currently possess that ID. He said the state will help provide a government issued photo ID free of charge to the voter.
   He said something new is that if someone shows up without any kind of identification, they can vote with a provisional ballot until the voter can be verified.
