Secretary of State Issues Voting Guidance During Pandemic

Arkansas Secretary of State

Late last week, Arkansas Secretary of State John Thurston issued a formal opinion on absentee ballot proceduresfor the 2020 General Election. After fielding questions and concerns from citizens who seek to safely vote during the coronavirus pandemic, Thurston says registered voters can request absentee ballots if they expect to be “unavoidably absent” from their vote centers. Governor Asa Hutchinson says he supports the opinion, but it requires additional consideration.
