The Arkansas Primary is on May 22nd with the Texas vote on May 29th this year. While the Presidential race seems to be set, there are still plenty of reasons to go to the polls this spring and cast your ballot.

There will be local and regional races on the ballot in both states. In Arkansas, voters in the 4th district in our area will be voting for Congress with contested races in both parties. In Texas, there will be the 1st District Congressional Race and across the state races in both parties for the  U.S. Senate. Current Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is retiring this year.
