How and where to register:
The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) has made it possible for Arkansans to apply to register to vote or change a name or address when applying for or renewing their driver's licenses or state identification card at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles.
A resident may register to vote in person at the County Clerk's office, or register to vote by mail. A pre-addressed Voter Registration Application is filled out and mailed to the Secretary of State's office where it is then forwarded to the appropriate County Clerk. The applications are available at all participating State Service Agencies, Armed Forces Recruitment and Arkansas National Guard offices in Faulkner County and Public Libraries. To make a name or address change or if you have any questions concerning voting or voter registration call the County Clerk's office at (501) 450-4909.
