LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Tuesday, June 13, on the State Capitol steps, Democrat Dr. Anthony Bland officially launched his campaign for Arkansas Secretary of State.
As a “leading voice statewide” for voters’ rights, Dr. Bland pledges to “put the people of Arkansas first by bringing real accountability and transparency to his office and securing and modernizing our elections so that every Arkansans’ vote counts and every Arkansans’ voice is heard.”
Dr. Bland called current state leaders way of doing things "outdated" and "stale." He claimed they have misplaced priorities and a lack of transparency.
“As Secretary of state, no matter who you are or where you live, I will put the people of Arkansas first by bringing real accountability and transparency to my office and securing and modernizing our elections so that every Arkansan vote counts and every Arkansans voice is heard,” Dr. Bland said. “Whether your Arkansas business is large and growing, or small and home-based, I will insist that my office is helpful and streamlined, not unresponsive and bureaucratic – by modernizing the office’s tools and prioritizing small business. Whether you work nine to five and support a family or are retired and need assistance getting to the polls, I will ensure registration is simple, and that you will have every opportunity to vote, and your vote is counted.”
Ruling announced Monday from nation's highest court.
