Missouri: Voting rights group sues state, election boards

Associated Press

Field investigators who interviewed people leaving state social service offices in the last year in Jackson, Clay and St. Louis counties and St. Louis city said almost none of those people were asked if they wanted to register, according to Scott Novakowski, a senior policy analyst for Demos, one of four national advocacy groups representing the plaintiffs. Three of the sites visited did not have voter registration applications available, he said.

"That indicates a pretty significant failure to comply with the federal law," Novakowski said.
