About This State
Arkansas. You're so serious about that correct pronunciation of the state that you wrote it into law. Gotta respect that, in the same way we (don't) respect people who wear socks with sandals. But here's what we do respect, deeply. Your commitment to voting this year. Here's everything you need to know to vote! Arkansas will have 5 main elections taking place in 2022. The statewide primary and primary runoff will be taking place on May 24 and June 21, respectively; the statewide general and general runoff will be taking place on November 8 and December 6, respectively. There will also be consolidated local elections on August 9. (Source: Ballot Ready)BE A VOTER

what's new in arkansas voting since 2020
Arkansas passed 15 new laws related to elections in 2021. Here's what you need to know. In the past, voters could use a sworn affidavit to verify their identity if they did not have their ID at the polling place. Now, voters who do not have their ID may cast a provisional ballot and return with a valid ID by the Monday after the election in order to have the provisional ballot counted. Some key deadlines have also changed. The last day to BOTH request and return an absentee ballot in person is now the Friday before election day. Finally, drop boxes may no longer be allowed under Arkansas law. One more thing: in 2020, all voters were able to use absentee ballots due to the pandemic. That temporary rule will no longer be in place in 2022, so only certain voters will be able to vote by mail. So make sure you've got the correct ID now and make a plan to vote.learn more

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
