WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ark. (KFTA) — Election officials from Northwest Arkansas and around the state met Thursday to review the midterm and runoff election season. 

The regional meeting was hosted by the Washington County Election Commission. It was joined by a number of election commissioners from nearby counties, as well those from the State Board, State Legislators and the secretary of state-elect.

They discussed any problems that might have happened during the most recent election season, as well as solutions. 

“It’s really beneficial to all parities to make sure that we’re all on the same page and that we’re working towards having good, secure, clean elections,” said Jennifer Price, election coordinator for Washington County.

Proposed legislation for 2019 and how to prepare for the presidential election in 2020 was also discussed.
