There’s been a big development in the 2020 Election to make sure Arkansas voters can request and send in their ballots via mail. Democratic Party of Arkansas Chairman Michael John Gray joined the Governor on Thursday to urge Arkansans to request an Absentee Ballot if they’re concerned about the risk of COVID-19 at their polling site.
As Chairman Gray noted at their joint press conference, “We now face the challenge of educating voters on how to properly obtain and use absentee ballots.” The Democratic Party of Arkansas is ready to do the work. But we can only do it with your help >>>
Voters will need to:
- Request an Absentee Ballot Application by contacting their County Clerk or downloading the application from the Secretary of State.
- Return or mail the Absentee Ballot Application back by October 27th if by mail.
- Receive their Absentee Ballot from their County Clerk’s office.
- Fill out and return their Absentee Ballot.
Unlike many states, Arkansas won’t be directly sending ballots to voters. Voters have to proactively fill out an application to receive their ballot in the mail.
It’s up to all of us — and the Democratic Party of Arkansas — to make sure voters know how to vote safely this November.
