Arkansas high court strikes down voter-ID law



Another stupid court released another stupid verdict. It’s seems that’s all they do these days:

FOX BALTIMORE – Arkansas’ highest court has struck down a state law that requires voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot.

The state Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld a lower court ruling that called the law unconstitutional because it adds an additional qualification for voting.

The Republican-led Legislature approved the voter ID law last year, overriding a veto by Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, and it took effect Jan. 1. A Pulaski County judge struck down the law in May but suspended his ruling pending appeal.

Arkansas is among a handful of states where voter ID requirements have been in limbo. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed new restrictions to take effect in North Carolina but blocked Wisconsin’s voter ID requirement.
