A Pocket Guide to voting in the Natural State
If you move within Arkansas: Complete a Voter Registration Application, checking the box for "This is an address change" and completing the bottom half of the form. Submit it to the county clerk in your new county no later than 4 days before a scheduled election. Otherwise, you will not be eligible to vote in your new county for that election. Counties will periodically mail notices to voters who have not voted in several elections. If you receive such a notice, it is important that you mark your correct address and return the notice to the county clerk so your registration can be updated. The Secretary of State performs another safeguard: routinely checking for duplicate registrations across the state. Just to make sure, it’s best for you to notify the county clerk in your old county and confirm that your registration has been transferred.
If your name changes: If you legally change your name due to marriage, divorce or other reason, complete a Voter Registration Application and check the box for "This is a name change," making sure to complete the bottom half of the form.
Call our County Clerk’s office to start the process: 870-933-4520
An absentee voter application will be sent to you. Once that completed application is received by the County Clerk's office, you will be sent an absentee voter packet. For the 2020 General Election, absentee voter packets will be sent out starting in late September.
Please follow the directions in your packet carefully and be sure to fill out the forms completely. Include a copy of your Photo ID in your return packet. If you have any questions, please call the County Clerk's office.
You can return your absentee voter packet via mail or drop it off at the County Clerk's office (511 S. Main St. Ste. 202) or the Election Annex (315 W. Jefferson) during early voting hours.
