    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The deadline to register to vote in next month's general election is approaching.

    Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin says the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 election is next Tuesday - Oct. 9.

    Martin says the registration deadline applies to all voters.

    Early voting begins Oct. 22.

    Aside from the presidential race, all four of Arkansas' Congressional representatives are up for election. All of the 135 seats in the Legislature have been up for election, too, but only 73 are contested.

    The ballot will also include a proposal to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes and other issues.
