Tuesday, November 8th will serve as an important day in politics not just nationwide but in Missouri as well. On November 8th, Missourians will have a chance to not only elect our next president of the United States but also vote for who will be representing them in the state legislature, as well as the future of voting in Missouri.
The PROMO PAC team has surveyed, interviewed, and endorsed a number of Missouri statewide candidates who have committed themselves to being champions of LGBT equality, supporting nondiscrimination protections for the community, while firmly taking a stance in opposition to discriminatory anti-transgender restroom bills and religious exemption legislation.
Along with these candidates, Amendment 6 will be appearing on every voter’s ballot across Missouri. Amendment 6 would require voters to present a government-issued photo ID in order to vote in each election, taking the right to vote away from over 200,000 Missourians.
Strict voter ID requirements put a burden on Missourians from being able to exercise their right to vote. If it were to pass, Amendment 6 would disenfranchise voters who cannot afford to get a government-issued photo ID, cannot physically access a space to get a government-issued photo ID, or cannot receive a government-issued photo ID that accurately reflects who that individual is (ex. the gender marker on the ID does not reflect the voter’s actual gender identity). Presenting a college ID, driver’s license from another state, an expired ID, a voter registration card, utility bill, or other currently acceptable voter IDs would not be sufficient if Amendment 6 were to pass.
On November 8th, come together with PROMO and hundreds of thousands of Missourians and vote NO on Amendment 6. The right to vote is a right that every Missourian should be able to exercise.
