Arkansas' Supreme Court has struck down a state law requiring voters to show federal ID before casting a ballot. The state's high court determined that it was an unconstitutional voting requirement.

This ruling may make it a lot easier for people to get to the polls as Arkansas' early voting for midterm elections began Monday, October 20. ....
