Kander Statement on Early Voting and HJR 90
Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander today released the following statement on early voting and HJR 90:
"I was encouraged when the legislature finally began to consider providing eligible Missourians with a more convenient way to exercise their constitutional right to vote," Kander said. "Unfortunately, it appears the legislative push for early voting was nothing more than a political game. By eliminating weekends and shortening the early voting period, the legislature has shown Missourians that this bill is simply a political strategy to counteract the citizen-driven early voting initiative petition."
