Arkansas Supreme Court says state can enforce voter ID law
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' highest court says the state can enforce a voter ID law in the May 22 primary despite a judge declaring the measure unconstitutional.
The state Supreme Court on Wednesday granted the state's request to halt a Pulaski County judge's ruling blocking the law's enforcement before the May 22 primary. Early voting for the primary begins Monday.
Pulaski County Circuit Judge Alice Gray last week sided with a voter who said the new law circumvents a 2014 Arkansas Supreme Court ruling that struck down a previous voter ID measure. The lawsuit challenging the 2017 law was filed by a Little Rock voter who was among the four people who sued over the previous photo ID requirement.
