Students encouraged to vote on Nov. 4

The Student Government Association (SGA) recently held three voter registration drives, which allowed students the opportunity to register to vote and receive informtion concerning the upcoming election.

Jenny Butler, assistant director of Campus Life, said the drive resulted in nearly 80 mailed voter registration forms.

“I think a lot of students are unaware of the election and the issues that are being voted on,” Butler said. “It’s important to educate our students and let them know how they can register so they can vote and make an impact.”

Voting is done through an absentee ballot, early voting or voting on election day, which is Nov. 4. Information concerning times the polls are open, the polling locations, a list of candidates and issues appearing on the upcoming ballot are available at www.sos.arkansas.gov/elections.
