PAWPAC has created this handy Ready to Run Guide to give you an overview of the basics of running for office in Arkansas. After you’ve read through that, download the the Running for Public Office handbook published by the State Board of Election Commissioner. It provides more in-depth information. Please read it carefully.

WHERE TO FILE
Partisan candidates for state and federal office file first with the state political party (in Little Rock) to pay filing fees, and fill out required forms (check with the state party about hours), and then with the Secretary of State at the State Capitol.
Non-partisan Judicial candidates file with the Secretary of State at the State Capitol during the filing period.
Partisan candidates for county offices file first with their political county committee to pay filing fees (check with the county committee about hours), fill out forms, and then with the County Clerk.
