LITTLE ROCK- An Arkansas Democrat-Gazette article published Sunday outlined exactly how big of a problem Arkansas’s new voter ID law was in the May primaries and left questions as to how to solve the problems in November’s elections. The voter ID law makes no allowance for absentee voters who did not include a copy of their form of ID with their ballot. The current Secretary of State attempted to add a rule to circumvent the law, but the action was deemed illegal by a judge.
The number of voters disenfranchised by the current ID law is completely unacceptable. Hundreds of legitimate registered primary election voters won't have their votes counted because they either don't have or forgot to bring their ID to the polls, or forgot to send a copy with their absentee ballot.
