Madison County Elections
NEW PHOTO ID LAW
Act 249 of the Arkansas State Legislature requires all voters (except voters residing in a long-term care or residential facility licensed by the state) to provide a Photo ID when casting a ballot. Absentee voters will be required to provide a copy of their Photo ID when they return their absentee ballot. Any voter not presenting the required Photo ID at the polls or when they return their absentee ballot will have until noon on the Monday following the election to present the required Photo ID to the County Clerk or the County Board of Election Commissioners. If Photo ID is not provided, your ballot will not count. Act 249 removed the "Optional Verification of Identity Affirmation" that was available to voters as an alternative to presenting a Photo ID during the 2020 election cycle. If you do not currently possess a valid Photo ID issued by the United States Government, the State of Arkansas, or a post-secondary educational institution located in the State of Arkansas, you are strongly advised to obtain one as soon as possible so that your vote will count. Please contact the Madison County Clerk's Office at (479) 738-2747 for more information and any questions you may have regarding the new Photo ID requirements.
