I am excitedly preparing to follow the election day commentary and action through social media channels. To do this, I’ve been working on my “cheat sheet” and thought it might be valuable to some of my fellow Arkansans. Be sure to let me know if I missed anything or should add anything. I am looking forward to election day!
