Arkansas Township Amendment

The Arkansas Township Assemblies Initiative, also know as the Arkansas Township Amendment, is a proposal to amend the Arkansas constitution to allow those living in townships across the state the freedom to form their own assemblies for the purposes of conducting local affairs in the best interest of the township.

Arkansas is one of 15 states where citizens have the right to put constitutional amendments, state laws, and referendums on the ballot for voters to decide. The citizen initiative process involves filing a ballot title with the Secretary of State’s Office, collecting voter signatures across the state and submitting the petitions for verification.

Be on the lookout for petition circulators at community events and sign your name. Than be sure to talk with your friends and neighbors about what this could mean for keeping big government out of their small towns
