Arkansas voters must register to vote by October 6th for the general election. Voters that wish to vote by mail may request their absentee ballots by October 27th.
During the spring of 2020 the Governor removed the excuse requirement for absentee voters in the municipal elections due to COVID-19. As the general election nears we will check back in to see if the order will remove the excuse requirement in November.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
