Description: Sen. Scott explains how the law will reduce voter fraud in Missouri.

A Cole County Circuit judge deemed the law unconstitutional because it infringed on the right to vote.  If passed, it would require all voters to show a valid photo ID.

The Attorney General has not filed an appeal in defense of the law.

Senator Delbert Scott says he plans to send his voter ID bill to the Missouri Supreme Court.

A Cole County circuit judge declared the law unconstitutional last week, but Scott says the issue is important enough to defend.

Scott is hopeful that the ruling will be made in time for the November ballot.

Description: "The Supreme Court is willing to expedite the hearing and, so, we anticipate them getting the case and making the ruling prior to November of this year."

If the Supreme Court overturns the latest ruling, voters will be required to have a valid photo ID in order to vote. 

The Attorney General's office has not filed its own appeal yet.
