  • Tips and reminders for a Primary Election
    • You will be required to show Photo ID
    • You will be asked to state your name, address and date of birth
      • this is to ensure you are you and that you receive the correct the ballot
    • You will be asked "What party's ballot would you like"
      • You are not declaring a party by answering this question, you are just choosing a ballot to vote on. In the primary, all candidates for the same office, same party candidates must compete against each other, the winners of each party for each race will then compete against each other in the General Election held in November. 
    • It does not matter how you are registered to vote (I.E. Republican, Democrat, or Optional), you can choose any party ballot but only one. Whatever party ballot you choose will only have candidates that are running under that party's name listed on it.
      • So let’s say voter Doe Fawn is registered as Optional in Voter Registration, Doe can choose the Democratic Ballot, the Republican Ballot or the Non-Partisan Ballot and it will not change how she is registered to vote. And she is not declaring to be apart of any party.
    • The Non-Partisan Ballot will only have Judicial and School Board races. Offices for US President, Congress, State House/Representatives, County JP or Constables will not appear on this ballot because they do not fall under the Judicial Category.
    • School Board races will appear on all ballot styles if there is a contested race. If the candidate is unopposed according to Arkansas State Law, that candidate is considered the winner and is declared as so and separately from the contested races.
    • Also unopposed candidates for County JP, Constable and School Board races will not appear if they are not contested. They will automatically be declared winners.
    • All other County Offices (County Judge, County/Circuit Clerk, Sheriff, Assessor, Collector, Treasurer, Coroner and Surveyor are now elected to 4-year terms and will not be up for re-election until 2022.
