AG: Ruling 'clear' no voter ID for election

AG: Ruling 'clear' no voter ID for election


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The state's top lawyer and top election official say the Arkansas Supreme Court's decision striking down a voter ID law means the requirement to show photo identification before casting ballots won't be in effect for the November election.

A spokesman for Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said Thursday that the court's decision is "clear" that the law doesn't apply to the upcoming election. Early voting for the Nov. 4 election begins Monday.

Secretary of State Mark Martin's office said the ruling means the law reverts back to what it was before voter ID took effect this year, and voters won't be required to show photo identification at the polls.

The court unanimously struck down the law on Wednesday, saying it violated the constitution by adding a qualification for voting.
