Complaint Filed Against Missouri Department of Social Services: ACORN v. Scott

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and St. Louis resident Dionne O'Neal have filed a federal lawsuit today charging that the state of Missouri has failed to provide voter registration services to clients of state public assistance agencies, as required by the federal National Voter Registration Act.

The lawsuit alleges the Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS) violated the NVRA by failing to provide Ms. O'Neal and thousands of other low-income Missourians with the opportunity to register to vote or change their voter registration address during visits to the offices of DSS agencies.
