Arkansas to be Part of New ‘SEC Primary’ in 2016

The 2016 presidential election is less than a year away, but the process for Arkansans primary voting will be a little different this year. 
This time, Arkansas will cast its primary votes with other southern states- some of whom we challenge on the football field. 
On March 1, Arkansas and six other states will vote in what some are calling the SEC Primary. It’s a coming together of states that has been years in the making. 
“In the primary election, your vote always matters more than it does in a general election, because there’s a smaller group of people participating,” University of Arkansas Political Science Dr. Janine Parry said. “So, mathematically, the odds that your vote makes a difference are going to improve.”
