UNDATED (AP) - A collection of voter voices during the 2014 primary election.

In Little Rock, Allan Griffin, 47, a network analyst, said he voted for Republican Curtis Coleman for governor.

"He's newer, I guess," he said. "I know Asa (Hutchinson) has been in the game a long time."

Griffin said It appealed to him when Coleman proposed a constitutional amendment that would allow the Legislature to overrule "activist judges."

Griffin said he voted for French Hill for the 2nd District congressional seat.

"I just hadn't heard very much from the others," Griffin said.

In Little Rock, Marilyn Keps, 57, a legal secretary, said she pulled a Democratic ballot.

"It was just a bunch of people running unopposed," she said.

Keps said showing her ID, which is required under a new law, wasn't a problem but she didn't like it.

"I wanted to say something snide about it but it's a bunch of little grandmas in there. They can't do anything about it," Keps said.

In Little Rock, Alison Brown, 52, an operations manager for a wireless company, voted a Republican ballot and that she was pleased to have so many GOP candidates to choose from.

"I like having two or three parties -- the independents. It creates a balance," Brown said.

Brown added that she was glad the voter ID law is in place.

"It keeps people from voting twice and the other kind of fraud you can have," she said.
