Millions of eligible voters in the US do not have Government-issued photo IDs and are therefore unable to vote. Along with minorities, seniors are one group who make up a considerable percentage of those without Government-issued photo IDs. Many seniors in Missouri without photo ID are unsure of the steps to take to get their ID which they are legally required to possess to vote. In this webinar presentation, we will explore the complex issues affecting seniors without IDs and learn the steps seniors can take to get their ID and assert their right to vote.
