The way the law stands now, poll workers are required to ask for your ID when you show up to vote, but you don't have to provide it.
Jack Shock of Searcy says he was surprised to see a sign that said "STOP Please have an ID ready!!!" as he got in line to vote at the White County Courthouse.
"I do think the sign is misleading because it says 'Stop, please show one of these forms of ID," Shock said. ...
Shock says while poll workers in White County didn't make him show his ID, his fear was the sign would send the wrong message to someone without an ID who is unaware of the law change.
"That might turn someone away, that might keep someone from voting, that might be intimidating and nobody wants to keep a citizen from voting," Shock said.
