You can look at your November ballot before you go to the polls. Craighead County Clerk Kade Holliday says the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office has established a website that allows you to view your ballot, as well as change any voter registration information. Holliday says this site is not new to the state, but it is new to Craighead County. "This site has been around for a while, but not all counties participate in this," said Holliday. "I want to make sure that we can get that information to voters as quickly as possible. It also allows voters to change any information on the ballot, such as last names, addresses and other information." Holliday also says this is better than publishing a sample ballot that might now be applicable to everyone: "Most of Jonesboro will be voting on a similar ballot, but there may be a different ballot if you live in Bay or Lake City. This will allow you to see your ballot quickly." Kade Holliday. You can view your ballot viewing it here.
