HEY, ARKANSAS VOTERS!

fuckyeahnaturalstate:

Are YOU looking for information on the upcoming election? You’re not alone!

Some of our followers would like more information about those running for office in Arkansas, as well as the issues on the ballot for the General Election on November 6th, so I decided to make a post with some helpful links:

  • For those of you who need to check the status of your voter registration or absentee ballot, go to VoterView.
  • This link provided by the Arkansas Secretary of State lists the offices up for election and district composition. For a visual depiction of the districts, click here for maps.
  • Ballotpedia offers great state by state information about state politics. The main page for Arkansas politics can be found here, but there’s another link for information about what’s on our ballot in General Election on November 6th
  • For information on the candidates in the US House of Representatives election in Arkansas, go here. You’ll find links leading you to information with as much information Ballotpedia could compile about the candidates—including links to each incumbent’s voting record.
  • This link will take you to information about the Arkansas State Senate elections.
  • This link will take you to information about the Arkansas House of Representatives elections.
  • There are five statewide ballot questions that have been certified for the General Election. Issue 1 would place a half-cent sales tax in the state. Issue 2 would authorize cities and counties to create districts for redevelopment projects. Issue 3 would allow for casinos in the state, while Issue 4 would allow for a casino in seven state counties; however, the two measures, proposed by two different sponsors, were rejected and votes for and against will not be counted. Issue 5 would authorize the use of medical marijuana in the state. If you would like to read the actual legislation for each issue, click this link provided by the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office. 

I made this state-specific, as I’m pretty sure y’all can find a plethora of info on the presidential candidates without any assistance. I hope this helps y’all! BE INFORMED VOTERS—REBLOG & CHECK OUT THE LINKS!

STFU, Conservatives: TW: Rape and sexual assault. Quotes by GOP members about rape

alexandraerin:

strugglingtobeheard:

Really, don’t read if you are triggered by rape apologism and medical industries lying about how rape works. Ok, so on point radio was talking about Todd Akin’s comments about legitimate rape. And I saw this comment on facebook that was really…

Sarah Palin’s foolishness ruined U.S. politics

mamaatheist:

At some point while watching HBO’s absolutely smashing (and terrifying) movie “Game Change,” it occurred to me that Sarah Palin has ruined America. The movie has been scalloped out of the book by the same name and focuses on Palin, rather than on the entire 2008 presidential campaign. The decision to do so was absolutely correct. With her selection as John McCain’s running mate, American politics lost its way — and maybe its mind as well.

"There’s global warming for you, it’s working wonders in the state of Iowa."

Sean Hannity, on it being cold, during the winter, in Iowa.

(via rantingnraging)

“If there’s global warming, why is it cold???” is one of my favorite short-sighted GOP arguments. Question: if world hunger exists, why am I full???

Class Warfare … “We have this fantasy that our interests and the interests of the super rich are the same. Like somehow the rich will eventually get so full that they’ll explode. And the candy will rain down on the rest of us. Like there’s some kind of pinata of benevolence. But here’s the thing about a pinata: it doesn’t open on it’s own. You have to beat it with a stick.”  ~ Bill Maher

Welcome to FOX News. Where we call children “Bastards” and “Dorks”

You know what they say, if you don’t have an argument, make fun of them and call them names. This is high school all over again, just on a much larger and more dangerous scale.
