Register to Vote

...Read More

First you need to be registered!


Did you know? Your local libraries in Crawford County have the Arkansas Voter Registration Applications?  


The deadline to get registered is Monday, February 3, 2020 for the Primary Election. 

More details at your library!  Or, click on the bar below.  








Library city locations are at Alma, Cedarville, Mountainburg, Mulberry or the Van Public Libraries.  Other locations to pick up a Voter Registration Appliation are as follows:



*  County clerk at the Crawford County Courthouse 


*  Disability agency


*  Military recruitment office


Once your local county clerk has processed your Voter Registration Application, he/she will send you a personalized voter registration card.  This could take up to several weeks. 


Never assume you are registered to vote until you have received your voter registration card from the county clerk.

Sign at Mountainburg Library

Hooray!  Mountainburg Library has a new sign!





Hooray! Mountainburg Library has a sign! We’re so grateful to those of you who donated or volunteered to help us raise money for this project, especially our wonderful Friends of the Library group. Thanks also to Jared Graham of Boulder Designs of NWA for making this beautiful sign for us! And to the city of Mountainburg for helping us dig the footing. We also remember Sue Yount today, since we built the sign in her memory for her many years of service to the Mountainburg Public Library. The dust is still settling on the sign and we have a little dirt to put back in place, but we’re so glad to be able to serve as we do here in Mountainburg, providing resources and library services for young and old alike. Now that you know where we are, stop by and see us!
