In order to vote under Arkansas law, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least eighteen (18) years of age on Election Day, and a resident of Arkansas for at least thirty-one (31) days prior to the first election in which you want to vote. You also cannot register to vote if you are a convicted felon, unless your sentence has been discharged or pardoned. Mental incompetence, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, also makes you ineligible to vote in the state of Arkansas.
