One of the biggest days of the 2020 Election Season is today with “Super Tuesday” Primaries happening in 14 states including Arkansas.
Arkansas holds an open primary meaning that anyone can vote on the Republican, Democratic, or Independent ballot regardless of party affiliation. Each voter will be asked to choose which primary ballot they would like to vote on and may only choose one.
One statewide election will appear on the ballot for Arkansas Supreme Court Justice. Justice Josephine Hart did not file for re-election and her seat is being sought by Morgan “Chip” Welch and Barbra Womack Webb. Arkansas Supreme Court races are non-partisan.
Normal voting hour will be in effect with polls opening at 7:30 this morning and staying open until 7:30 this evening.
Most counties will hold voting at their normal locations. For more information, voters can contact their local County Clerk’s Office or Election Commission.
