Chris Powell, press secretary for the Arkansas Secretary of State’s office, said there hadn’t been any major election problems across the state as of about 1:30 p.m. 

He encouraged people to verify their polling places before heading out to vote. He said that one man at his polling place waited in line for about 40 minutes before being told his polling place had changed. 

You can check your polling place by using an online tool created by the Secretary of State’s office.

Once the polls close at 7:30 p.m., results will start to be posted on the Secretary of State’s office website, starting with early votes and absentee ballots.
