Monday marks the deadline for Arkansas voters to register to vote in this year's primary election.

Secretary of State Mark Martin says voters can register at county clerks' offices or public assistance offices or print a form online and mail it in.

Early voting begins Feb. 16 for the March 1 primary election, which includes both presidential, state and judicial races. Lawmakers last year approved moving the election up to March 1 so voters can participate in a regional nominating contest known as the "SEC primary."

Arkansans can look up their voter registration status or polling place at www.voterview.org .
