CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A decision from the Arkansas Supreme Court will impact what you need to bring to the polls during the May 22 primaries.

The injunction came down late Wednesday afternoon.

It stayed a ruling from the circuit court that would have effectively stopped the voter ID requirement from being enforced in Arkansas.

Since the injunction was issued, the voter ID requirement is back in effect.

Craighead County Clerk Kade Holliday said you need to be prepared before casting your ballot this month.

“So what voters need to know is starting Monday with the early vote they will be required to provide a photo ID,” Holliday said. “Now that can be a driver's license, a student ID from an accredited post-secondary institution, any federal or state ID can be provided and that will suffice for the voter ID requirement.”

If you do not have any form of identification, Holliday said they can print you one at the clerk's office or you can vote provisionally and sign a sworn statement that says you are who you say you are.

    When a judge set his bond at $100,000 a man suspected of aggravated residential burglary had just one thing to say to the judge: “Good bond.” But, the judge wasn’t finished. And neither was the suspect.
