The AP reports that a lawsuit has been filed attempting to squelch a ballot item authorizing voter identification legislation.
From the article:
Rather than protect voters, as the legislatively approved ballot title states, the measure actually would restrict the constitutionally granted right to vote in elections, Denise Lieberman, an attorney for a group backing the lawsuit, told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday and assigned Cole County Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce, online court records show. It asks the judge to bar the measure from the ballot or, alternatively, to rewrite the summary presented to voters.
