How do I register to vote?

As the next election year approaches, look out for different organizations to sponsor voter registration events. There will be many that occur. If you register at one of these events or at the DMV, keep a lookout for your voter registration card in the mail. If 3 weeks goes by and you have not received your card, call the County Clerk's office to check on the status of your registration (933-4520). It's important to follow up so you can be sure of your voting status before the election.

Voter registration forms are available at the County Clerk’s Office, 511 S. Main Street, Suite 202, Jonesboro.

How do I change my address?

If you move within Arkansas: Complete a Voter Registration Application, checking the box for "This is an address change" and completing the bottom half of the form. Submit it to the county clerk in your new county no later than 4 days before a scheduled election. Otherwise, you will not be eligible to vote in your new county for that election. Counties will periodically mail notices to voters who have not voted in several elections. If you receive such a notice, it is important that you mark your correct address and return the notice to the county clerk so your registration can be updated. The Secretary of State performs another safeguard: routinely checking for duplicate registrations across the state. Just to make sure, it’s best for you to notify the county clerk in your old county and confirm that your registration has been transferred.

If your name changes: If you legally change your name due to marriage, divorce or other reason, complete a Voter Registration Application and check the box for "This is a name change," making sure to complete the bottom half of the form.
