Monday To-do: Oct. 18

Today is your first chance to vote in this fall’s general election. The official day isn’t until Nov. 2, but early voting begins at 8 a.m. this morning.

If you’ve never voted early before and are unsure of the process, don’t worry, it’s easy.

Just head over to the Washington County Courthouse at 280 N. College Ave. and head upstairs to the County Clerk’s office.

Voting hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Note: If you’re a last-minute kind of person and you wait until Monday, Nov. 1, the clerk’s office closes an hour early at 5 p.m.

As always, you can check your registration and view a sample ballot


Therapeutic Justice: Life Inside Drug Court, a documentary film about the Washington County Drug Court, premiers at 7 p.m. tonight in the Arkansas Union Theatre. A panel discussion about cameras in the courtroom will follow the screening. The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

Anyone who’s been following the drug court saga lately, particularly the most recent news that the show is temporarily off the air, should consider checking out this film.
