Did you have the card they sent you in the mail? That, or a utility bill or bank statement in your name, is all you need in MO. You can also use a student ID, something most voter ID laws will not allow for (which is wildly transparent). SOS, Missouri - Voting ID Requirement

You have very little incentive to say you're someone who you're not. And even if you wanted to, how would you know who that other person was and to what polling place they were assigned?

Don't worry. In the bigger cities, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people continue to vote after not only their photo IDs expire but after THEY expire, too, so I guess it all balances out to make it fairly fair.

Haven't you heard the meme, there is no such thing as voter fraud.

Democrats file federal complaints against Akin - St. Joseph News-Press and FOX 26 KNPN: Local News

Democrats file federal complaints against Akin



The Missouri Democratic Party has filed complaints saying that Congressman Todd Akin has violated federal statutes that cover bribery and the acceptance of gifts by public officials.

The complaints stem from the lawmaker changing a long-held position regarding earmarks in order to get campaign funding.

Mr. Sanders said that between 2008 and 2010, the congressman requested $150 million in earmarks. By reversing his position, Mr. Akin has butted against federal laws, the party head insisted.

McCaskill still leads, but the race appears to be tightening up a bit:

Came across another reference to how much federal money has found its way to businesses affiliated with Claire's husband during her first term:

Feds paid $40M to firms tied to McCaskill's spouse - ABC 33/40 - Birmingham News, Weather, Sports

I'm sure it's all legal and frankly a coincidence that businesses in which Claire McCaskill's husband has an interest received $40 million in federal dollars during her first term in office.
