Election commission makes changes ahead of November election

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Important Election Day changes were finalized Monday at the Craighead County Election Commission meeting.

The committee finalized all the polling centers in the county ahead of the November 6th Election Day.

Craighead County will house 21 polling centers instead of polling sites.

"There are going to be nine in Jonesboro and 12 around the county," said Jennifer Clack, the Craighead County election coordinator said.

This voting season will be different than in years past and more convenient for voters.

"Now we can program every machine with the entire county, so you can go wherever you want to vote," said Clack. "If you live in Lake City but you're in Jonesboro, you can vote in Jonesboro and vice versa."
