Early voting begins today; ID required

Early voting in the primary and judicial elections has begun. Because rulings invalidating the state Voter ID law have been stayed, a specific form of photo ID will be required, though you can cast a provisional ballot without one.

The provisional ballot won't be counted unless 1) the voter produces a valid ID at the clerk's office or 2) before counting is done, the Supreme Court invalidates the law. Which, if words in the Constitution have meaning, it should do. Big if ....

In Pulaski County, early voting continues through May 19, with voting at early vote sites from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. One exception: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, May 19.

Polling locations in Pulaski County here.

Voting is light in the Democratic primary in Pulaski County — governor, a race for state representative and two contested Quorum Court primaries.

The Republican side is busy — 2nd District Congress, Governor, Lt. Gov., attorney general, treasurer, auditor, three state House races and a JP race.

In judicial elections, there's a contest for Supreme Court and, in most of the county, a race for circuit judge.

Here's the link to all races on the ballot.
