Arkansas Voter Suppression Bills

May 19, 2021

Lawsuit brought by the League of Women Voters of Arkansas and Arkansas United challenging four new voter suppression bills. The bills go after every aspect of the election process: requiring signature matching of absentee applications, cutting the time to return an absentee ballot, removing the option for registered voters without an ID to sign an affidavit, and banning line warming. The lawsuit claims that all four laws violate the Arkansas constitution.
