Arkansas political filing season ends Monday

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Would-be poltical candidates from Arkansas' political parties have until noon Monday to declare they're running for office. Candidates in non-partisan races have until 3 p.m.

All seven of Arkansas' constitutional offices will be on the ballot this year, as areall four U.S. House races and an already hotly contested U.S. Senate race.

In the Legislature, all 100 House seats are up, as are half of those in the state Senate.

At the top of the ticket are races for governor and the U.S. Senate, with candidates announcing months ago for those seats.

Arkansas' primary election is May 20, with a run-off three weeks later in races where no one receives more than 50 percent of the vote. The general election is Nov. 4.
