Election Day, Nov. 6, is rapidly approaching, and deadlines to register are even closer. High Black voter turnout will be instrumental for Democrats to retake Congress, as well as gubernatorial races in Florida, Maryland, and Georgia—three states where Black candidates could make history.

Arkansas: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
