JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Voters will head to the polls Nov. 6 to decide federal, state, county and city races throughout Northeast Arkansas with several major races on the ballot.
Officials suggest voters contact their county clerk’s office or visit the Secretary of State’s Voter View website to find out more about polling places for early voting and on Nov. 6.
The following is a look at the November general election and the races that will be on the ballot:
Arkansas voters will decide four U.S. House seats on Nov. 6.
In the 1st District, which covers most if not all of Region 8, incumbent Republican Rep. Rick Crawford is facing both Democratic challenger Chintan Desai and Libertarian Elvis Presley this fall.
Incumbent Rep. French Hill, R-Little Rock is facing Democratic challenger State Rep. Clarke Tucker and Libertarian Joe Ryne Swafford in the 2nd District, which covers White County.
Also, incumbent Republican Reps. Steve Womack and Bruce Westerman are running for re-election in the 3rd and 4th Districts, respectively.
Womack is facing Democrat Josh Mahony and Libertarian Michael J. Kalagias, while Westerman is facing Democrat Hayden Catherine Shamel, Libertarian Tom Canada and write-in Susan Ann Martin.
All seven statewide offices are also on the ballot this year.
Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson is seeking a second term in office and will face Democrat Jared Henderson and Libertarian Mark West on Nov. 6.
Republican Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin is also seeking a second term in office and will face Democrat Anthony D. Bland Sr. and Libertarian Frank Gilbert.
SECRETARY OF STATE
The race is an open seat as three candidates are running for the job of being the state’s top election official.
Republican Land Commissioner John Thurston is running against Democrat Susan Inman and Libertarian Christopher Olson. The winner of the election will replace Republican Secretary of State Mark Martin, who is term-limited and cannot seek another term in office.
Incumbent Leslie Rutledge ran unopposed in the GOP primary in May and will face Democrat Mike Lee and Libertarian Kerry Hicks in November.
Both Lee and Hicks also filed unopposed in their party’s primaries.
Incumbent Republican Andrea Lea will face Libertarian David E. Dinwiddie in the November general election.
The race is also an open seat as three candidates also filed to run this year. The candidates are Republican Tommy Land, Democrat Larry Williams and Libertarian T.J. Campbell.
The winner will replace Thurston, who is running for Secretary of State.
Incumbent Republican Dennis Milligan is facing Libertarian Ashley Ewald during the November general election.
ARKANSAS SUPREME COURT
Two candidates are also running for a seat on the Arkansas Supreme Court.
Justice Courtney Goodson is being challenged by attorney David Sterling for the position 3 on the court. Goodson and Sterling were the top two vote getters in the May 22 primary.
PROPOSED BALLOT ISSUES
There are five proposed ballot issues that will be on the November ballot, according to wording from the Secretary of State’s office.
· Issue 1: Proposing an amendment to the Arkansas Constitution to limit attorneys' contingency fees in civil actions to thirty-three and one-third percent (33 1/3%) of the net recovery; to limit awards of punitive damages and non-economic damages in civil actions; to require adjustments to the limitations on punitive and non-economic damage awards for inflation or deflation; and to provide that the General Assembly may, by a three-fifths vote of each house, amend or repeal a rule of pleading, practice, or procedure prescribed by the Supreme Court and adopt a rule of pleading, practice, or procedure. The Arkansas Supreme Court has ordered election officials not to count votes for or against the proposal.
· Issue 2: An amendment to the Arkansas Constitution concerning the presentation of valid photographic identification when voting; requiring that a voter present valid photographic identification when voting in person or when casting an absentee ballot; and providing that the State of Arkansas issue photographic identification at no charge to eligible voters lacking photographic identification.
· Issue 3: A proposed amendment to the Arkansas Constitution concerning term limits for members of the Arkansas General Assembly; to provide that no person may be elected to more than three (3) two-year terms as a member of the House of Representatives, to more than two (2) four-year terms as a member of the Senate, or to any term that, if served, would cause the member to exceed a total of ten (10) years of service in the General Assembly; to repeal Section 2(c) of Amendment 73 that established a years-of-service limit on members of the General Assembly of sixteen (16) years; to provide that the ten-year service limit shall include all two (2) and four (4) year terms, along with full years of any partial term served as a result of a special election to fill a vacancy; to apply the limits to terms and service in the General Assembly on and after January 1, 1993; to provide that this amendment shall not cut short or invalidate a term to which a member of the General Assembly was elected prior to the effective date of this amendment; to provide that notwithstanding the General Assembly’s constitutional authority to propose amendments to the Constitution, the General Assembly shall not have the authority to propose an amendment to the Constitution regarding term limits for the House of Representatives or Senate, and to continue reserving that power to the people under Article 5, Section 1, as amended by Amendment 7; and to declare that if any provision of this amendment should be held invalid, the remainder shall stand. The Arkansas Supreme Court on Oct. 19 disqualified the term limits proposal, not counting ballots cast for or against the issue.

The runoff election for city and county races will be on Dec. 4.
Voters in several area cities and counties will also decide the fates of proposals on Nov. 6.
In Randolph County, voters there will decide on a wet/dry vote after the group, Let Randolph County Vote, turned in 4,490 signatures back in August.
The number was more than enough to place the measure on the ballot.
To the west in Sharp County, there are two sales tax proposals to help build a county jail if approved by voters.
According to a post on the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service website on the issue, voters will decide the fate of a quarter-cent countywide sales tax and a half-cent countywide sales tax and issuing $10,995,000 in bonds for the project.
The quarter-cent sales tax would “pay for the costs associated with acquiring, constructing, improving, expanding, equipping, furnishing, operating and maintaining new or existing jail and law enforcement facilities, and for repaying bonds approved by the voters and issued by the county to finance jail and law enforcement facilities,” the Cooperative Extension Service reported.
The half-cent sales tax would “pay for acquiring, constructing, equipping, and furnishing new jail and law enforcement facilities and associated utility, road and parking lot improvements.”
The bond debt on the project would be paid off in 12 to 13 years from revenue collected on the half-cent sales tax, which would expire once the debt is paid, UA Cooperative Extension Service officials said.
The quarter-cent sales tax, which would be permanent, would be used for the maintenance and operation of the new jail and sheriff’s office building; constructing and furnishing the building and repaying any bonds approved by voters, the report said.
If both are approved by voters, the county’s sales tax would go from 1% to 1.75%.
In Poinsett County, voters there will also decide the fate of a one-cent sales tax with funding going toward the sheriff’s office and detention center.
Poinsett County Sheriff Kevin Molder hosted a series of town hall meetings on the issue and has said the sales tax is crucial for the upkeep and maintenance of the facility in Harrisburg, as well as providing updated equipment for deputies.
Mayor Dale Dunlap said earlier this year that the annexation would impact 25 to 30 homes that are currently in Poinsett County on the edge of town.
Voters in the Brookland area will also decide an annexation request next month.
The Brookland City Council voted in July to place the proposal on the November ballot. Mayor Kenneth Jones said the request will help the city during the 2020 Census, while people who live in the area have said they are opposed to the issue due to higher taxes and utility bills.
