Missouri photo voter ID legislation will be on the Nov. 8 ballot, but legislation directing how to implement the measure is still on Gov. Jay Nixon’s desk. If voters approve the proposed constitutional amendment, then implementation legislation could come into play. Nixon could sign or veto the measure. In the event of a veto, the Republican-dominated General Assembly could attempt an override.
Nixon decline to say Thursday during a visit to the University of Central Missouri whether he would sign or veto the bill, but hinted a decision is not far off.
“All of the folks I’ve tasked out to get the analysis done for me so I could review this bill in about 10 or 11 days would be extremely upset,” he said, if he negated their work with a pre-emptive announcement.
