Arkansas - Covid 19 can be used as reason to request absentee ballot.

All Arkansans will be able to cite concerns about covid-19 as an excuse to vote by absentee ballot in the November elections, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Thursday.

“They just simply have a concern, a fear of going to the polling place because of the covid-19, that’s enough of a reason,” to vote absentee, Hutchinson said.

Thurston said voters can begin requesting absentee ballots from his office or the county clerk immediately. The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is Oct. 27, though voters can pick up an absentee ballot until Nov. 2, the day before the election.

All absentee ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted, Thurston said.
