Arkansas Supreme Court Allows Voter ID

Voter ID

Yesterday, the Arkansas Supreme Court stayed a ruling from a lower court judge last week that struck down the state’s voter ID law.

On Wednesday, the state’s highest court ruled that election officials can enforce a law passed in 2017 that requires voters to show their identification at the polls in the upcoming May 22nd primaries. Last week, Pulaski County Judge Alice Gray ruled the law was unconstitutional and said it could not be enforced.

Gray ruled any changes made to the state voter rules must be germane to Amendment 51 of 1964, which abolished the unconstitutional Arkansas poll tax requirement previously found in Article 3, Section 1 of the Arkansas Constitution.    MORE
