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.

- 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!
