Get Out the Vote! Early Voting Begins Today
Monday, October 20, 2014 6:30 AM


Early voting begins today in Arkansas and Texas, in the run-up to Nov. 4, Election Day in America. In 2014, it's the midterm races for local, state, and national office holders.

Are you ready to Get Out the Vote?

Yes, the midterm elections are a big deal. We fought wars for the right to elect our leaders, and the outcome of every election affects not only tomorrow's American life, but our history as well. Yet, the Pew Research Center recently released a poll that said only 15 percent of Americans are following the midterms very closely. Among 18 to 29 year olds, only 5 percent were following the election closely. The amount of attention increased with age, but even among 65+ voters, it was only 25 percent.

Help us GOTV! Tell your members and employees, take a friend with you to the polls, and vote early when you can.

Following are some links to help you navigate your state agencies for important election information.

Early voting for the general election begins between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. Early voting ends at 5:00 p.m. on Nov. 3. For more information about voting in Arkansas, please refer to the Arkansas Secretary of State website, election pages.


To take advantage of early voting, you may vote at any polling location in your county beginning Monday, Oct. 20, through Friday, Oct. 31.
