We wrote on Friday about the Primary Elections, and we’re writing about them again today because today is the day early voting starts!
- Electing leaders: Typically, the Primaries have lower voter turnouts, but we all can change that this year and be involved in shaping our region politically. Arkansas Democrat-Gazette has put together a voter guide that includes information about each Arkansas candidate.
- Vote and ride: According to recent numbers, just 15% of Arkansas vote in the May Primaries where around 85% of races are actually decided, according to Common Ground Arkansas. You can learn more about early voting locations, what you need to bring, and see a sample ballot based off your residence here.
Early voting opens today, May 9, and Primary Election Day is May 24.
