If you don't vote, who will?
The problems that occurred during the 2000 Presidential election illustrated the need for some changes and improvements to federal and state election practices. In response the United States Congress passed the “Help America Vote Act” (HAVA) in 2002. HAVA mandated changes in almost every part of the voting process, from voter registration to the types of voter equipment used at the polls including accessibility for voters with disabilities. The goal is to make registering and voting as simple as possible so that all citizens are empowered with the confidence that their votes are being counted accurately.
What type of voting system is use in my county?
In addition to the equipment that is accessible to individuals with disabilities at each polling site, 28 counties will also use computer-counted paper ballots. Nine counties will count ballots using optical scanners at each precinct, while 19 counties will use a single central ballot counter at a location such as the courthouse. Three counties will continue using their existing DRE electronic voting equipment, which meets HAVA's requirements.
“Voting is a not only a privilege, but it is also an obligation that each citizen must take seriously. As a democratic nation, it is imperative that our educators not only understand the workings of our government, but also actively participate in it and impart its importance to our students.
If we care about the future of our children, our state, and our country, Arkansans must register to vote and teach our children to be informed voters. By voting, our young people will have opportunities to live up to their full potential, and make their own unique contributions to society. Then we can we truly say that we are preparing for the challenges that lie ahead.”
- Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe
