WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ark. (KFTA) — Monday (March 2) is the last day to vote early in the March primary election.
For those who plan on voting, approved photo identification is required. This includes:
- Driver’s license
- Photo ID
- College ID
- Concealed handgun carry license
- Military ID
If you don’t have a valid ID, ask for a provisional ballot at the poll.
Director of elections for Washington county, Jennifer Price said early voter turnout has been beyond expectations.
She said numbers have exceeded early voting numbers in both the 2016 and 2018 elections.
“Early voting is more and more popular,” Price said. “Voters realize that it’s convenient, it’s easy, you get in and out really quickly and so we feel like voters are taking advantage of that more and more. “
Price went on to say that for those who haven’t voted, it’s important to do so. Even though it may not feel like it, every vote matters.
“We’ve had races where five votes determined the winner,” Price said. “34 votes determined the winner. And so it is important, especially on a local level, that your vote does matter.”
You can vote early at the Washington Country Courthouse on Monday, March 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
