The Arkansas Democratic Party pointed out the cruel irony of the voter ID laws:
I wonder if he stills supports the law now.Asa Hutchinson was turned away from the polls because he didn’t have proper ID as required under Arkansas’s Voter ID Law. Given Asa’s support for making it harder for Arkansans to cast a ballot, you’d think he would have been prepared to produce his ID at the polls.
A: I support the voter id law. The integrity of the ballot box is essential to democracy. #AskAsaAR [Twitter, 8/28/2013]
We hope Asa’s experience at the polls yesterday will cause him to reevaluate the unnecessary burden the Voter ID law places on senior citizens, students and those serving in the military. Arkansas’s Voter ID law was ruled unconstitutional and is still under review.
