JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KDKZ-TV) The State of Missouri is being sued for alleged federal voter registration law violations.

The league of Women Voters of Missouri and local chapters of the A. Philip Randolph Institute are asking U.S. Western District Court Judge Brian Wimes to direct the state to change its practices before the general election in November. They allege the Department of Revenue doesn’t automatically update voter registration after address changes and is failing to provide all required registration information to voters.

A similar suit was filed by the ACLU last month – all of these groups are accusing the Secretary of State of not ensuring that voting laws are being followed.
