With changes to the state's voter ID requirements, the top election authority in the state will host an informational meeting in Hannibal.

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft is traveling the state to discuss the state’s new photo voter ID law on Thursday. He will meet with the public and media, “reassuring Missourians that every registered voter will be able to vote.”

Ashcroft will host a meeting in Hannibal at 9 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 3, in the city hall council chambers.

He will also host a meeting at the Bowling Green Housing Authority (510 W. Champ Clark Dr.) at 10:45 a.m. on the same day.

Missouri’s voter-approved Photo Voter ID law went into effect June 1. Ashcroft is traveling statewide to publicize the new law and provide clarification to questions from the media and public.
