Term limits

Barry Hyde represented District 40 of the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2007 until 2013. He was ineligible to run for re-election in 2012.
See also State legislatures with term limits and Impact of term limits on state representative elections in 2012

The Arkansas House of Representatives has been a term-limited state house since Arkansas voters approved the Arkansas Term Limits Initiative in 1992 as an initiated constitutional amendment.

There are 100 Arkansas State Representatives. In 2012, 23 of them (23%) who were current members were ineligible to run again in November (19 Democratic state representatives and 4 Republican state representatives).

In addition to the 23 state representatives who left office because of term limits, 10 Arkansas state senators were also termed-out.

Arkansas state representatives whose seats were up for election in 2012 but who were unable to run because of the state's term limits were:

Democrats (19):

Republicans (4):

Impact of redistricting

Governor Mike Beebe's redistricting maps were approved 2-1 in August 2011. Democrats Beebe and Attorney General Dustin McDaniel voted yes, while Republican Secretary of State Mark Martin did not approve. Martin and others have criticized the maps' impacts on the representative districts of the Arkansas House of Representatives. Beebe's map reduces the number of districts with an African American majority from 13 to 11 and pits four pairs of incumbents against each other in 2012. Martin's map would have increased the number of districts with an African American majority to 15 and would have only paired 3 sets of incumbents in 2012. Senator Hank Wilkins defended the current maps, claiming "In order for us to keep three districts (in southeastern Arkansas), in essence the percentage of African-Americans would be so low that in my mind we would not really have majority-minority districts. "We'd have districts that, conceivably we could lose all three African-Americans (in the House), and I was not willing to take that chance."[1]

Redistricting has lesser impacts in the Arkansas State Senate, maintaining the current number of African American dominated districts at four. It also pairs no incumbents against each other in 2012.[1]

The four pairs of current incumbents who were placed in the same district in 2012 were as follows:

Qualifications

Article 5, Section 4 of the Arkansas Constitution states: No person shall be a Senator or Representative who, at the time of his election, is not a citizen of the United States, nor any one who has not been for two years next preceding his election, a resident of this State, and for one year next preceding his election, a resident of the county or district whence he may be chosen. Senators shall be at least twenty-five years of age, and Representatives at least twenty-one years of age.

Partisan

On August 10, 2011 a self-proclaimed conservative Democrat, Rep. Linda Collins-Smith, switched parties and joined the Republican ranks.[4] As of August 2011, the move shifted the partisan balance in the Arkansas House from 55-45 to 54-46.

Although the switch didn't change the partisan balance in the house, many Republicans from across the nation have hailed the switch as a sign of things to come for Republicans in 2012. Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee Chairman, spoke out in a statement released by the GOP, "Today's switch is a clear indication that Republicans have changed the conversation and are leading the way to turn our economy around and help job creators." [4]

Democrats however, have dismissed Collins-Smith's decision, and have chalked it up as a just another legislator disgruntled over redistricting. State Democratic Chairman Will Bond referred to the move as "shrewd" and "political." [4]

Collins-Smith reacted to the Democrats' statements, claiming the decision was made after the end of the session, and had nothing to do with the redistricting maps.[4]
