Voter Registration Information

Check your voter registration status.

If you need to register to vote, you can pick up applications from the Pulaski County Clerk’s Office, the Secretary of State Elections Division, the local revenue or DMV office, a public library, a disability agency, or a military recruitment office. Residents can also request an application be mailed to them. Or the forms can be printed from home in both English and Spanish.

Registration Deadline

  • You must submit your application to an official voter registration agency or mail it no later than 30 days prior to an election in which you wish to vote. The postmark on a mail-in application will be considered the submission date.

  • If you completed your application at a voter registration drive, the organizers must submit it to the county clerk or Secretary of State’s office within 21 days of the date on the application or no later than 30 days prior to the next election.

  • If you submit your application close to an election registration deadline, you are strongly advised to follow up on your registration status with your county clerk before Election Day.

  • If an election deadline is looming, there is one method of application that will ensure your eligibility: apply in person with your county clerk.

  • If you have not received verification from your county clerk, be sure to confirm your registration BEFORE Election Day.

  • If you have moved from one county to another within Arkansas, you must update this information with the county clerk no later than 4 days prior to Election Day via a Voter Registration Application.
