Little Rock, Arkansas (November 20, 2014) | Secretary of State Mark Martin confirms November 4 General Election results are certified and certificates of election will be issued to candidates who received the highest number of votes.

“Approximately 50 percent of the 1.7 million people registered to vote in Arkansas cast their ballots in the Nov. 4, election,” said Secretary Martin. “I appreciate our county clerks and poll workers across Arkansas who work year-round to maintain the integrity of our voting process.”

According to section 7-5-701 of Arkansas election law, counties must certify results to the Secretary of State’s office no earlier than 48 hours after the election and no later than 15 days after the election. This allows overseas military and citizens time to ensure their votes are counted in accordance with the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.

Comprehensive Election Night reporting provided by the Elections Division on the Secretary of State’s website allowed the public to easily monitor the election results reported by officials statewide throughout the evening of the election.

Results for Constitutional Offices, the U.S. House of Representatives, Judicial, State Senate, State Assembly, and local government races are available for review.

For a historical perspective, detailed results from previous elections can be found under the Elections Division tab on the Secretary of State’s website, www.sos.arkansas.gov.
