When it comes of elections, candidates usually get most of the attention. However, besides picking their leaders, Arkansas voters also get to make their own laws via ballot issues.
Ballot issues are proposed laws and constitutional amendments that voters decide, collectively, to adopt or reject. In Arkansas, ballot issues can be referred to the people by the legislature or by a petition drive.
As of this writing, five ballot issues are slated to be voted on this November. To the best of our ability, we have summarized the proposed ballot issues to give voters as clear a picture as possible of what each proposal would do, if passed.
All printed copies of the Arkansas Voter’s Guide include a copy of these summaries (order your printed guides here or call our office at 501-375-7000). If you have any questions about the ballot issues or the summaries below, feel free to call our office at (501) 375-7000.
