Candidate filing deadline at noon today
The deadline for filing as a candidate for the May preferential primary in Saline County is noon today, March 3. Saline County Clerk Doug Curtis says his office is open for business this morning, as are all county offices.
When asked if there would be an extension of the deadline due to the inclement weather in the area, Curtis said he received an email from the Arkansas Secretary of State's office on Friday, Feb. 28 which stated that "there is no provision in the law for extending the filing deadline."
Candidates may file at the "Vote here" building in Downtown Benton on the courthouse square. Curtis states, "We're here and will be until noon."
