Election board selects representation in voter ID lawsuit

LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Board of Election Commissioners says it wants the state's attorney general's office to represent it in a civil liberty group's lawsuit that challenges Arkansas' voter identification law.

In a Thursday meeting in Little Rock, board members — some attending by phone — unanimously agreed to have the attorney general's office represent them in the lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas challenging the state's voter ID law.

The law requires voters to provide proof of identification and was approved by the Republican-led legislature last year.

Another lawsuit has been filed against the board by the Pulaski County Election Commission that alleges the board overstepped its authority in passing emergency rules regarding voter ID in the casting of absentee ballots.

At first I thought this was a bit slow, but this article was written BEFORE Judge Fox's ruling in the PCEC suit agreeing with the ACLU's position in this one. (Presumably the ACLU case will now be put on hold while the PCEC case goes before the state Supreme Court.)
