Missouri Fourth in Country in Motor Voter

State Capital Bureau

Missouri will have a higher percentage of new voters next November than all but three other states. Rich Kurz reports from the Capitol:

RunTime: 35
OutCue: SOC

Missouri has been one of the country's best performers since the motor voter law went into effect last January.

Only Alaska, Colorado, and Washington D-C have registered a higher percentage of new voters than Missouri.

Debbie Chesire is Missouri's Director of Elections:

RunTime: 15

The law allows people to register to vote when they renew or change their driver's license, or apply for welfare benefits.

In Jefferson City, I'm Rich Kurz.
