LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 22, 2012) - Today is the last chance for voters to to cast ballots in the Preferential Primary and Nonpartisan Judicial elections.
"Tuesday is the last day to vote in the primary and judicial elections," Secretary of State Mark Martin said in a press release. "Thousands of Arkansans have already participated during the early voting days, and we want to make sure all eligible registered voters remember to go to the polls."
Polls are open from 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. statewide on Election Day.
"It's especially important this year that voters to check their polling locations," Martin added. "During the redistricting process, many people were transferred to new polling sites. Voters are required to vote in their correct precinct on Election Day, so please don't wait to check your own information."
Those changes could also affect the races voters see, Martin said.
"Voters may be in a new legislative, congressional or JP district, so we want to make sure they are informed about the races they'll see on the ballot."
Voters can find their polling location and district information by contacting their local county clerk's office, or by visiting the Secretary of State's voter information site.
More than 88,000 Arkansans have cast their ballots ahead of the May 22 primary and non-partisan judicial election.
Runoff elections for the preferential primary will be June 12. Runoff elections for nonpartisan judicial candidates will be during the General Election Nov. 6.
