Are you registered to vote? People fail to vote for a lot of reasons—lack of awareness, apathy, confusion, or a belief that “my vote won’t make a difference.” The Arkansas Bankers Association encourages all #ARHometownBankers to make their voices heard this November, and we hope that “not being registered” won’t be the reason you don’t vote.

Registering to vote is easy! Just log on to the Arkansas Secretary of State website and complete Arkansas’s voter registration application. You can also use this site to find out how to update your voter registration information, see District Maps, and view proposed ballot issues.

Nearly 20,000 Arkansans, and 2.1 million Americans, are employed by the banking industry. United, our employee vote will make a difference in this year’s election. The cornerstone of our system is a government of the people; increased voter participation can and will improve how the system performs for each of us.
