Arkansas Supreme Court up­holds re­vised voter iden­ti­fi­ca­tion law

USA TODAY US Edition - - NEWS -

Arkansas’ high­est court on Thurs­day up­held a voter ID law that is nearly iden­ti­cal to a re­stric­tion struck down by the court four years ago.

The 5-2 de­ci­sion from the Arkansas Supreme Court means the law, which re­quires vot­ers to show photo iden­ti­fi­ca­tion be­fore cast­ing a bal­lot, will re­main in ef­fect in this year’s elec­tion.
