Missouri settles federal lawsuit by agreeing to make 'Motor Voter' registration easier

JEFFERSON CITY — The state of Missouri has agreed to make online voter registration easier in order to settle a lawsuit alleging the state was violating the federal National Voter Registration Act.

The April 2018 lawsuit, filed by the St. Louis and Kansas City chapters of the League of Women Voters and the A. Philip Randolph Institute, accused the state of violating the federal law by not automatically updating voter information after residents change addresses.

As part of the settlement reached Thursday, the Department of Revenue will redirect residents to the secretary of state’s voter registration website when they change their address through the Department of Revenue.

The Department of Revenue also agreed to changes to in-person and by-mail change-of-address transactions, which the League of Women Voters said will improve voter registration services.
