DO YOU KNOW YOUR VOTING RIGHTS?
You’re required to have a form of picture ID with you to vote, or a copy of it to send in with your absentee ballot.
If you’re going to be 18 on or before the next election date, you can register to vote.
You can vote early.
If you choose to vote on Election Day, as long as you’re in line before they close, they have to let you vote.
NEW LAWS IN ARKANSAS THAT CAN AFFECT VOTING
Non voters are not allowed within 100 feet of polling locations. This is supposedly to prevent electioneering or campaigning around the polls.
Your signature on your absentee application and voter registration must match. The county clerks will check these and it they don’t match up, they won’t send you an absentee ballot and you will be forced to vote in person.
Now you must turn in your absentee ballot by the Friday before election day.
If you go to vote and don’t have your ID with you, you can still vote but this is called a provisional vote and IT WON’T COUNT until you go to the county clerk’s office and show them your ID. This has to be done by the Monday after Election Day.
If you don’t have a driver’s license, there are a number of other ID’s you can use, including:
- Voter ID card
- Concealed carry license
- US passport
- Arkansas college/university employee badge
- US military identification document
