Members of the Northwest Arkansas Forward Party will have a booth setup at the Bella Vista Farmers Market located by the Mercy Medical Center, 1 Mercy Way, Bella Vista, AR 72714.

We will be:

  • Collecting ballot petition signatures and distributing blank petition packets for ALL 2024 approved Arkansas ballot initiatives (where the sponsors have responded to our volunteers' offers of assistance).
  • Educating voters about the Forward Party and potential upcoming 2026 democracy improving ballot initiative campaigns we support such as Ranked Choice Voting / Instant Runoff Voting, Non-Partisan Primaries, and Independent Redistricting.
  • Registering voters
  • Giving out Forward Party buttons, bumper stickers and campaign literature.

***The Forward Party will NOT be making official endorsements of any 2024 Arkansas Ballot Initiatives, but the Arkansas Forward Party DOES support "Direct Democracy" through Arkansas' Citizens Initiative process.  One of our core values is "More Listening, Less Talking", and our main goal with providing this public service is to listen and learn from our fellow Arkansans.  It is important to note that signing off on any ballot initiative does not necessarily mean support, and only means that the signatories are for putting the initiative to the people so that it may be "adopted, enacted or rejected by the vote of registered voters".***

Petitions Available for Signing:

* Government Transparency Act
* Government Transparency Amendment
* Feminine Hygiene (Pink Tax) Act
* Education Rights Amendment
* Abortion Amendment
* Medical Marijuana Expansion Amendment


Don't miss this opportunity to directly participate in our democracy and to potentially contribute to real change in Arkansas!!  Or just come by to meet some local Forwardists, and pick up some Forward Party items and literature along with some fresh, locally grown produce or other local goods available at this market.
