The Arkansas Supreme Court has tossed out a judge’s ruling that struck down the state’s voter ID law, according to a report from affiliate station KTHV.

THV reported that the justices on Wednesday (May 14) struck a Pulaski County Judge’s decision that the law violated the Arkansas’ constitution.

Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox had struck down the law during a case that focused on how absentee ballots were handled by law, but the justices ordered a stay on his ruling while they considered an appeal.

    Unfortunately not soon enough. My 87 year old mother had to vote absentee and send the ballot in with a copy of her picture ID (which was a driver’s license, even though she does not drive).

    We should REQUIRE all voters to provide an official government issued ID to vote. I am sick and tired of all the nonsense! If a person wishes to vote, they should PROVE they are a legal resident to be able to vote. A government issued ID should be the requirement to do so!!!
