The effort to provide on-campus voting

Posted By on Mon, Oct 24, 2016 at 7:00 AM

Early voting has begun and in many places across the country, that means convenient voting centers on college campuses for the young voters clustered there (along with faculty).

You'll recall that the Washington County Election Commission's Republican majority refused a voting center at the University of Arkansas. Other jurisdictions have fared better.

Peter Butler, president of the Hendrix College Student Senate, and Dr. Jay Barth, director of civic engagement projects at Hendrix, will talk about the success of expanded access to student voting sites on their campus at 6 p.m. today at the Clinton School of Public Service. Perhaps it will give others some ideas for the future, if not 2016.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
