Posted: September 7, 2017 at 1:08 a.m.

NWA Democrat-Gazette/SCARLET SIMS Poll workers get a refresher Wednesday on election processes from Jennifer Price, Washington County Election Commission executive director, during a training session at the county courthouse in Fayetteville.

The instructions for poll workers explaining new state rules for provisional ballots fill the entire side of a 12-by-16 inch manila envelope.

Acceptable IDs for voting

Under Arkansas Act 633, acceptable IDs for voting include: driver’s licenses, photo identification cards, concealed-handgun carry licenses, U.S. passports, employee and student badges or identification documents from accredited colleges and universities, U.S. military identification documents, public-assistance identification cards and free voter-verification cards.

Nursing Home Residents Voting Documents

A voter living in a long-term care or residential facility licensed by the state can provide a document from the administrator attesting to the identify of the voter living at the facility. The form, provided by the Arkansas Secretary of State, can substitute for other forms of voter identification.
