This is a VERY good law! It will stop blacks, latinos, and poor white trash from voting. That way it will be easier for us to keep them down and exploit them and use them while we Republicans live life in our big mansions. Good times!

There is no evidence of significant voter fraud. Mickey Mouse never votes. The aim is to make it harder to vote for voters who will likely vote Democratic, like students and the poor and the elderly and people who live in big cities and don't drive. Not as relevant in Arkansas as many other states, but the trend of voter intimidation among republican legislatures is spreading like cancer.
Your a dumbass. I don't think republicans had black panthers at polling places.

We need illegals here to keep wages low! If we don't have illegal immigrants here willing to work for less than the INSANELY high minimum wage of $7 an hour all of us rich Republicans will go broke! Please bring in more illegals we need to keep the wages of americans down so businessmen like me can make more money! Thankyou for your support. Vote Republican.

Really? Driving has nothing to do with an ID? Have you never drove before? The same place that give that ID, which is acceptable as a voter ID, will provide the other IDs. Often times people have to take a 1/2 a point at their place of employment to renew their drivers license. Will people who don't drive do the same thing to get a voter ID? Maybe. Maybe not. But it's undeniable that it effects people like students, the poor, the elderly, and people who live in big cities and don't drive the most. People who are more likely to vote Democratic. Hence the laws by republican legislatures.
You're so stupid if you can drive to vote, you can get an Id. Pretty simple. How else you supposed to know age etc. you libs just want to load a bunch of non voters to go vote. You Obama voters should have to pay the rest if us damages loser.

There are a number of people that have voted for years that can't now, older Arkansans. Some don't have the needed documentation to get an ID and will have to pay for birth certificates copies to get an ID. That is a poll tax.

The Democrats didn't either. Did you watch the panther video? They didn't stop anyone from going in to vote, dumbass.

Exactly, and if they need a social security card then they will not only have to pay in order to get it, but for dozens of towns around they will have to make their way to the social security office to apply for a copy in person in Jonesboro.

Arkansas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union said it plans to file a legal challenge to the law.

Eric Holder is also looking into challenging the law.

there is no proof of significant voter fraud. this is a solution in search of a problem. no. scratch that. this is a solution to the declining popularity of the republican party nationally. loosing by landslides of electoral votes? boo hoo. change the rules and try to win dishonestly I guess. I bet you miss the days when only rich white men could vote. your glory days.
