Early voting to begin statewide Monday

Early voting for the upcoming November election begins statewide on October 22.

Individuals may call their county clerk and inquire about registration status and polling locations may be checked online at www.voterview.org.

In most counties, early voting is conducted at the county clerk’s office. In counties with off-site early voting, local newspapers will publish the designated sites.

During a preferential primary or a general election, early voting is available between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, ending at 5 p.m. on the Monday before the election. Off-site early voting hours may vary by county; watch local newspapers or contact the county clerk for information.

If your name or address has changed, information may be updated at the early voting site.

Voter turnout during a mid-term election is typically much lower than during a presidential election year.

However, the results of mid-term elections have an enormous impact on the state.  On this ballot, Arkansans will decide the outcome for the office of the governor, attorney general, and state representative just to name a few.  Depending on the outcome of ongoing legal challenges, there could be up to 5 ballot issues before voters.  A link to a guide explaining the ballot issues in detail can be found at www.arkansashouse.org.
