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.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
