Arkansas Supreme Court Grants Temporary Stay in Voter ID Law

LITTLE ROCK -- This means the law will remain in place until further ruling. The court has ordered the parties to file briefs no later than noon on Friday.
LITTLE ROCK --  On Tuesday, the state Supreme Court granted a temporary stay in the decision by a Pulaski County Circuit Judge  that ruled Arkansas' Voter ID law, which would require voters to show photo ID at the polls, unconstitutional.

This means the law will remain in place until further ruling.  The court has ordered the parties to file briefs no later than noon on Friday.

The circuit county judge had deemed the law unconstitutional because, he said, the law attempts to add voter qualifications to the guidelines set forth in Arkansas' Constitution which further impairs Arkansans' right to vote.

State senator Bryan King, lead sponsor of the Voter ID bill, was the guest earlier today The Natural State of Politics podcast.
