JONESBORO — Election commissioners in Craighead County say they received conflicting advice on how to treat absentee ballots that were submitted during a recent special election.

Commission members said the state board that supervises them said voters were required to present a valid ID when turning in their ballots, and that any who came in without an ID should be rejected.

But the secretary of state said the Craighead County Election Commission should give voters a period of time to show a proper ID.

Craighead County Election Commission Chairman Scott McDaniel said the panel chose to wait and give voters extra time.

The Jan. 14 special election was decided by a wide margin, but the local commission says it is worried about what would happen in a close race.
