Arkansas Voter Registration Extended Until Tuesday, Oct. 11

ARKANSAS ELECTIONS

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — New Arkansas voters have an extra day to register to vote in the Nov. 8 general election because of Columbus Day, which is considered a postal holiday.

The original voter registration deadline was Oct. 10, but because the United States Postal Service is closed the registration forms cannot be postmarked. That’s why Arkansas county clerks pushed back the deadline to Oct. 11.
