Other Factors and Resources

  • In 2020, the University of Arkansas, League of Women Voters, AIGA and other nonprofits created a traveling exhibit: Get out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote. 
  • Arkansas has one of the earliest deadlines for voter registration–30 days before the election. It also has a high rejection rate of absentee ballots and, despite a LWV lawsuit, does not inform voters. According to the Center for Public Integrity, these and other methods disproportionately affect Black citizens and make voting more challenging.
