What the Secretary of State Does

The office of the Secretary of State touches the lives of almost every Arkansan.

Children have their first inspiration to serve and get involved in government the moment they step into the State Capitol. It’s at that moment that we start planting in the minds of young people how important it is to vote and to participate in our democracy.

It is through these educational exhibits and interpretations that we tell “her story,” the story of Arkansas, with all of her colorful history and past leaders who have shaped the great State we have today. The Secretary of State is an ambassador for Arkansas in the simplest of ways by caring for the building and the people who visit it, by being proud of both who we were and who we are and by sharing the story with others.

The most basic way that we honor the story of Arkansas and help shape her future is through our democracy and it’s bedrock: ELECTIONS. The Secretary of State leads a core group of hardworking individuals who actually make elections happen at the local level and provides support and guidance to those folks whose job is one of the toughest public services jobs.

The Secretary of State leads by providing solid information and assistance to voters who need to know how to participate in our democracy. They help voters find their polling place, study their ballots and understand the rules so the voting process is a positive experience. The Secretary of State is there to help solve problems when they arise. That’s leadership!

One word to sum up the role of the Secretary of State is “servant.” Hundreds of thousands of business owners interact with the office each year. The Secretary of State assists with the incorporations of businesses, payment of franchise taxes, training of notaries, and generally just “being there” to answer questions from the community about doing business in Arkansas.

The Secretary of State oversees the maintenance of the Capitol grounds, mowing, caring for the native trees and plants, sweeping the floors, cleaning the bathrooms and generally spends every day showcasing Arkansas and its people.

The job requires humility and leadership! As your next Secretary of State, I promise to serve all our citizens putting people over partisanship and I will be an ambassador to our visitors.
