Arkansas voter ID
If you’re voting in person in Arkansas, you will need to provide a photo ID that is issued by the United States, state of Arkansas, or a college in Arkansas (such as a driver’s license, passport, military ID, public benefit card, or student ID) at the time that you vote.
If you don’t have a photo ID, you can still cast a provisional ballot that will be counted if you sign a sworn statement and provide ID by the following Monday.
If you’re not voting for the first time in Arkansas, you don’t need to provide ID to vote by mail.
If you’re voting for the first time in Arkansas, registered to vote by mail, and didn’t submit a copy of your ID when you registered, attach a copy of one of the following to your mail ballot:
Non-driver’s license ID
Current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document with your name and address
Local Election Office: This is the government office responsible for running elections in your region. Theses are the best people to contact if you have any questions at all about voting in your state.
