Lawmakers override Nixon on Mo. voting bill


The Missouri Legislature has voted to override the veto of legislation allowing elected officials to cast votes remotely.


Currently, members of a governmental body comprised of elected officials must physically attend a meeting to vote. The legislation allows them to vote through videoconferencing.


Senators voted 31-3 on Wednesday to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto. House members voted 125-32 to override.


Nixon said elected officials should be able to use technology to participate in meetings but should be expected to show up to cast a vote.
