Crawford County Clerk Teresa Armer will be a candidate for re-election for another two-year term.
If re-elected, it would be Armer’s fourth term as county clerk, and she has 21 years experience in the clerk’s office.
"I would be honored to continue working with and for the people of Crawford County," Armer said.
The county clerk’s office is responsible for maintaining guardianship, decedents, small estate, mental incompetence and adoptions for the probate division. They also issue marriage licenses, maintain voter registration, early and absentee voting, are responsible for accounts payable, county payroll and insurance, state redemption deeds reports, receipts and expenditure reports.
"We are in the process of finalizing the details to provide early voting at an off-site location for easier, faster service for the voters of Crawford County," Armer said. "Because early voting at the courthouse caused voters a long wait in line due to limited space and equipment. We are moving early voting to the EOC Building, formerly known as the old armory, across from Summit Medical Center. This location will provide easy access and the large facility will hold more voting machines, allowing 10 voting machines instead of the previous four at the courthouse."
The change was made available through approved grant funds applied for through the county clerk’s office.
"I ask for your continued support to serve Crawford County by voting for me in the upcoming election," Armer said.
The county clerk also serves as secretary for the Crawford County Quorum Court, Crawford County Board of Equalization and Intergovernmental Council Committee for the county.
Armer is a member of the Arkansas Association of County Clerks, Van Buren First Assembly of God, Kiwanis Club of Van Buren, BOST board of directors, Van Buren Women’s League, Transverse Myelitis Disability Association and treasurer of the Crawford County Central Committee.
Armer served two years as vice president of the Crawford County Democratic Women, second vice president for Kiwanis of Van Buren and volunteers with various fund raisers for Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Arkansas Special Olympics. Armer began the Kristen Armer Scholarship in memory of the daughter.
Armer, 43, is the mother of the late Kristen Armer, daughter of Roger and Evelyn Campbell, and a sister to Lanetta Smith and Michael Campbell, all of Van Buren.
