Howard County voters received a postcard in the mail, last week, with information on their voting precinct and voting place.
The only problem is that some of the information was wrong or misleading for many voters.
The cards were mailed out due to redistricting required by the 2020 US Census and re-mapping by the Arkansas Legislature and companies which managed re-drawing the districts, wards and precincts for city and county divisions.
On many postcards the “VOTE AT” information is wrong. The site was sometimes a ‘default’ setting because there are no longer voting the traditional voting places.
The information on the current voting precinct for the postcard recipient should be correct, says Howard County County Clerk Keri Teague, who added that she had been getting calls from voters concerned about the incorrect “VOTE AT” information.
