Decision supports voting rights

The Missouri Supreme Court sent the absentee ballot case filed by the state chapters of the League of Women Voters and NAACP back to Cole County. It found “the petitioners present a real, substantial and presently existing controversy regarding the interpretation of Missouri’s absentee voting statute. The petitioners seek to protect the right to vote guaranteed by the Missouri Constitution and, given the upcoming August and November elections, their claims are ripe for judicial determination.”
