Registration deadline extended thru Tuesday

JONESBORO, Ark. – This election season has been one of the most unique in history and many people who have never before had an interest in politics have become interested in the political arena.

It is all for naught without voting, however.

Monday, October 10 was the deadline to register to vote in the State of Arkansas. Because mail does not run Monday due to the Columbus Day holiday, the deadline to have registration postmarked is Tuesday, Oct. 11.

However, the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office decided Monday, for consistency purposes, to extend all voter registration to Tuesday, Oct. 11.

“We will be here at the Courthouse in Jonesboro and the Courthouse in Lake City from 8am – 5pm today,” Holliday wrote on Facebook. “Make sure you stop by and see us and register to have your voice heard in November!”

The Craighead County Courthouse will also be open Tuesday until 5:00 p.m. to get registered to vote.

In Lawrence County, the clerk’s office will be open until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday for residents to register to vote.

In Randolph County, the courthouse annex in the downtown square will accept walk-in registrations through 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, as well.

In Poinsett County, the clerk’s office is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you’re not sure if you’re registered, or where you will vote, we have you covered.
