Arkansas: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:30 AM-7:30 PM

    Your precinct is determined by where you live and the polling site is assigned by your county election commission. Most local newspapers publish a list of polling sites within a few days of an election. If you received a Voter ID card from your county clerk, it may show your precinct. You can also find your location BY contacting your registrar office .

    What to Expect When Voting

    • An election official will ask you to state your name and address and confirm your date of birth.
    • The election official will ask you to provide identification. The following documents are acceptable: a current and valid photo ID or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the voter.
    • If you're unable to provide ID, the election official will note it on the Precinct Voter Registration List, and you may vote a regular ballot.
    • If you registered by mail after January 1, 2003, and did not submit the required ID with your voter registration application, you may be required to show ID to vote a regular ballot. If you don't present ID, the election official will instruct you on voting a Provisional Ballot.
    • In a primary election, you must state the party primary in which you wish to vote. If you do not wish to cast a party ballot, you may choose to vote only in the non-partisan races (which may include judicial contests, tax increases and other local issues).
    • In a primary election, you are allowed to vote only one party's ballot or the non-partisan judicial ballot. The election official records which party's ballot you choose.
    • Next, you will sign the Precinct Voter Registration List, and the election official will add your name to the list of voters.
    • The election official will give you a ballot or direct you to a voting machine.
    • After setting the voting machine, or handing you a paper ballot, the poll worker will leave you in private. You are allotted 5 minutes to vote.
    • You will go alone to a voting booth and mark your ballot. You are allotted 5 minutes to vote.
    • If you vote a paper ballot, you will deposit it into the ballot box or an electronic scanner.

        • You will be unable to attend your polling site on election day due to illness or physical disability, OR

Here you'll find out how to become a registered voter, as well as how to request ballot materials and make sure your ballot is processed in a timely fashion.

        Early Voting

        • Depending on the type of election being conducted, you may early vote during the 7 or 15 days prior to Election Day.
        • In most counties, early voting is conducted at the county clerk’s office.
        • In counties with off-site early voting (a location other than the county clerk’s office), local newspapers will publish the designated sites.
        • During a preferential primary or a general election, early voting is available between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, ending at 5 p.m. on the Monday before the election. Off-site early voting hours may vary by county; watch your local newspaper or contact your county clerk for information.
        • During all other elections, early voting is available during your county clerk’s regular office hours.
        • If your name or address has changed, you may update your information at the early voting site.

        College Student Voting In Arkansas

        Students can establish residency in Arkansas if they have a present intention to remain at their Arkansas school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.Any other interpretation of the residency law is unconstitutional.In order to vote at your school address, you must not currently intend to return to live in another county or state and you must ensure that your voter registration is up to date with your current school address. Voting in Arkansas may be considered a declaration of residency, potentially making you subject to other laws that govern state residents

        Students who lived in Arkansas before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Arkansas voting residency (i.e., their parents' Arkansas address), should have no problem doing so.[11] Like most states, Arkansas allows students to keep their voting residency even if they move out of the district to attend school, and the only way you will lose this residency is by establishing residency in a new state. While registering to vote in another state is not automatically considered an abandonment residency in Arkansas, some judges or officials might view it as such. If you have established residency in another state and are moving back to Arkansas with the intent to reside here again, you will have to follow the normal registration procedures to re-register in Arkansas.

        Mover's Guide: Arkansas

        Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

        If you moved to Arkansas from another state, you must register to vote in Arkansas to be able to vote.The last day to register in time to vote in the next election is thirty days before the election. If you moved from out of state, you may register to vote the same day you become a resident of the State of Arkansas.

        If you move to a new address within your current precinct, you have the right to vote in that precinct after filling out a change-of-address form.

        If you move to a new address in your county but outside the precinct where you’re registered, you have the right to vote at your new precinct and fill out a change-of-address form there.

        If you moved to another county within the state, you should complete a new registration form to update your registration records. If you moved to a new address in a different county or a different congressional district, you should transfer your registration to your new address by contacting your county clerk or completing a new registration form.
