Early voting begins today. Bring ID.

Posted By on Mon, May 7, 2018 at 5:04 PM

Early voting began today for the May 22 primary election. Arkansans will also choose judges, including a state Supreme Court justice.

For Pulaski County voters, here's a list of early voting locations from the election commission, and a list of primary and judicial candidates. 

The voter ID law passed by the Arkansas legislature last year will be in effect, thanks to a ruling last week from the state Supreme Court. A Pulaski County circuit judge enjoined the law, but the justices stayed that injunction.

This will be the first county-wide election in which the new ID law applies, Shawn Camp, the assistant director at the Pulaski County Election Commission, confirmed. (There have been a couple special elections since the law went into effect last year, but none were county-wide.)
