Frequently Asked Questions :
Q. How can I get help if I have questions about the voting process?
A. Contact your County Clerk. If you have access to a computer, email the Elections Division of the Arkansas Secretary of State at: email@example.com. You may also log on to the website of the Federal Voting Assistance Program at (www.fvap.gov), which provides information for servicemen and women overseas. The FVAP also helps all military personnel with access to a DSN phone. Dial toll-free DSN 425-1584.
Q. Most of the instructions refer to my legal voting residence and my county of residence. As a member of the armed forces who has been transferred, what is my official residence?
A. For voting purposes, your residence can be either the place you last resided before entering service, or it can be your new legal residence. Military and family members may change their legal residence each time they change permanent duty stations, or they may choose to retain their original residence. A valid street address – even your former address – is required to be sure you are voting in the correct precinct. P.O. Boxes are not allowed. Consult a legal officer before changing residence, because other factors besides voting must be considered.
Q. What are the instructions for members of my family who are stationed with me?
A. Family members follow the same procedures as military personnel.
