(Arkansas) The Arkansas Senate is considering a proposal to require voters to show photo identification to vote.

Poll workers are currently required to ask for identification,  but voters don’t have to show it to cast a ballot.

The proposal wouldn’t take effect until the state has the money to pay for id’s for voters who don’t have a driver’s license.

Voters living in nursing homes would be exempt.
