CONWAY (Log Cabin) - Faulkner County voters can get a free Voter Identification Card at the Faulkner County Courthouse.
The Faulkner County Clerk received the ID printer in December, and
has so far made one person a voter ID. More are expected as November's
midterm election gets closer.
Some form of state- or institutionally-issued ID is required by Act
595, which became law last year after the state Legislature voted to
override Gov. Mike Beebe's veto of the ID requirement. Support for the
ID requirement was split along party lines, with state Republicans
arguing that it was a common sense measure to prevent voter fraud while
Democrats maintained that it would tend to disenfranchise poor,
minority, absentee and elderly voters.
