When voters go to the polls, they will be required to tell election officials which one of three party ballots that they desire to vote. The choices are: Democrat, Green Party of Arkansas and Republican.
The candidates' names will appear as follows:
Democrat ~ Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Christopher J. Dodd, Mike Gravel, Dennis J. Kucinich, Bill Richardson, Barack Obama
Green Party of Arkansas ~ Kat Swift, Jared A. Ball, Cynthia McKinney, Kent Mesplay
Republican ~ John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee.
Election commissioners have made one change that will begin with this election, said Stowers. The voting location for the Campbell 4, Cache and Richwoods precincts has been changed.
Voters in these precincts, who have traditionally voted at the courthouse, will now vote at the Walnut Ridge Community Center, along with the other Campbell precincts, she added.
Arkansas is one of more than 20 states conducting presidential primaries on Feb. 5, making the date Super Tuesday in this year's presidential race.
Early voting for the presidential primary began Tuesday and is being conducted through the county clerk's office at the courthouse through Monday. County Clerk Tina Stowers said early voting will be conducted during regular office hours from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, during those days.
