Arkansas Supreme Court: Voting allowed in public

Justices of the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled today that voters can make their selections in a public place if they so wish, but that poll workers cannot force the option on them.

The opinion came in light of a lawsuit by Keith Hamaker of Little Rock who alleged that poll workers at a site in 2008 were requiring voters to mark their ballots from a community table, rather than from within an election booth, according to The Associated Press.

Hamaker opined that voting has no place allowing voting to occur in a place not defined by law.
