How do I register to vote?
In the state of Arkansas, you can register via mail, in person, or at the polls on Election Day.
To register via mail, you must download and fill out the application then send it to one of the designated locations.
To register in person, you must visit a distinct location (location varies but you can choose to register at a local county’s clerk office, any Arkansas ODS, any public/state library, any public assistance agency or a military office) and then fill out the voter registration.
The deadline to register in person is 30 days before Election Day.
You must designate a party affiliation to vote in a primary election, but you can cast a nonpartisan ballot.
If you legally change your name, you must submit a new voter registration, but you only need to complete the name change portion. If you move to a new address within your county, contact your county clerk’s office. If you move to a new county, you must submit a new registration form in your new county.
The deadline to update your registration is 4 days before Election Day.
