Local Arkansas Ballot Issues

Connecting with voters on local election issues can be a challenge for any community. Voters might have preconceived notions about an issue, lack trust in the election campaign or simply not know that a measure is on the ballot.

For more than a decade, the Public Policy Center has worked with Extension's county agents to create educational materials for local ballot elections. 

This assistance can be in the form of:

  • Fact sheets
  • Community forums
  • Educational programs

Counties and cities interested in Extension's local ballot issue education program should contact their county agent, who then work the Public Policy Center to create and distribute materials. Fact sheets are written by the Public Policy Center staff and reviewed internally and externally before publication. We ask supporters, opponents and neutral parties to review the information to ensure they are accurate and unbiased.
