The Parkville affiliate of the American Association of University Women will present a public information forum on Missouri Constitutional Amendment 6, Missouri Voter ID Requirement, on Thursday, Oct. 27, in the Jenkin and Barbara David Theater inside Alumni Hall on Park University’s Parkville Campus. The event, which is open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m.

Speakers for the event will be Missouri State Sen. Robert Schaaf, M.D., (R-St. Joseph, District 34) and Linda Smith, co-president of the League of Women Voters of Kansas City/Jackson/Clay/Platte Counties, Mo. Matthew Harris, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science at Park University, will moderate the discussion.

The proposed amendment states:
Shall the Constitution of Missouri be amended to state that voters may be required by law, which may be subject to exception, to verify one’s identity, citizenship, and residence by presenting identification that may include valid government-issued photo identification?

A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to state that voters may be required by law to verify their identity, citizenship and residence by presenting identification that may include valid government-issued photo identification. Exceptions to this identification requirement may also be provided by law. A “no” vote will not amend the Missouri Constitution regarding elections.

For more information about this event, contact Debra McArthur, secretary and president-elect of the AAUW Parkville affiliate, and director of academic support services at Park, at debra.mcarthur@park.edu or (816) 584-6332.
