Ballot Issue Voter Guide, Videos Available
Early Voting Starts Oct. 19
Voters now have two ways of reading the 2020 Arkansas Ballot Issue Voter Guide: online or in print.

County Extension offices across the state have a limited number of ballot issue guides available for pickup. Contact your Extension Office today for information about where to pick up a copy. Or go to www.uaex.edu/ballot to download.

Voters also have several options for watching summaries of the three proposed constitutional amendments on the ballot.

Tune in at 7:30 p.m. tonight to Arkansas PBS to catch Dr. Stacey McCullough and Kristin Higgins talk with Steve Barnes about the three issues referred by the legislature. The segment re-airs at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Or watch our summaries now in these YouTube videos:
