On May 23, an Arkansas Circuit Court again ruled that the Arkansas law requiring voters at the polls to show government photo ID violates the State Constitution. See this story. This time, his decision does not suffer from the procedural flaw that affected the same court’s first ruling. The new decision is Kohls v Martin, an ACLU case. The judge stayed his own decision, because the state says it will appeal.
The first decision was Arkansas State Board of Election Commissioners v Pulaski County Election Commission. That decision had been reversed by the State Supreme Court on May 14, because neither side in that case had asked that the voter ID law be declared unconstitutional. The new case doesn’t suffer from that impediment.
