Are you going to vote? Get informed!

Posted on 21 Sep 2010

In case you haven't noticed, it's election season. 

So if you're looking for a one-stop shop to learn about the candidates and what issues are important to fellow Arkansans, then you need to visit the AETN elections site.

On the site, you can find information about each candidate, ballot issues and a debate schedule, but I think one of the best features of the site is the candidate Q&A. We asked each candidate the following questions and you can read their answers on the site.

  • What do you consider to be the most important issue affecting Arkansans?
  • How do you plan to address this issue?
  • What do you hope to accomplish while in office? 

The site also features voter resources including how to register, where to vote and how to get your voice heard. 

Even if you don't know much about politics or the candidates, I encourage you to visit the AETN elections site to learn what you will need to be an informed voter come Election Day. 


Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.


Volunteers Like You
You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.
