Trial Over New Missouri Voter Photo ID Law Begins

A trial over whether election officials are doing enough to help voters navigate Missouri's new voter photo identification law has begun.

Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem heard testimony from critics of the law Monday. The trial is scheduled to last all week.

Groups including the Missouri NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri are arguing that the state didn't spend enough money or resources educating people about the new requirements and helping them obtain proper identification.

Attorneys for Missouri say the secretary of state's 18-month informational campaign "far exceeded" what's required by law to educate voters.
