Arkansas Voter ID Law Struck Down

The Arkansas Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the state’s law requiring voters to show photo identification before casting a vote is unconstitutional. The decision could have major ramifications for the election, as it comes just days before early voting begins. The court said the law added a requirement for voting that was not in the state’s constitution. The state legislature in Arkansas had overridden Democratic Governor Mike Beebe’s veto to approve the measure last year.
