More voting sites
The Pulaski County Board of Election Commissioners will likely approve additional east side polling locations for the Aug. 9 sales tax referendum in North Little Rock.
At the commission’s meeting on Friday, Pulaski County election officials said the Glenview Community Center was planned to serve as an early voting location. The Rose City Community Center will likely be a voting site on Election Day.
The decision comes after the Pulaski County Board of Election Commissioners removed the Glenview Community Center as a voting site for the May 24 primary election.
North Little Rock will hold a special election on August 9 when voters decide to keep a half percent sales tax for another five years.

Grammy-nominated rock band North Mississippi Allstars will headline the musical series Argenta Vibe from 7-9 p.m. June 24.
The Music Series is a monthly event at Argenta Plaza that brings free music to downtown North Little Rock. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, as space will be limited. Drinks and outside coolers will not be permitted, with only alcohol purchased from nearby bars and restaurants allowed, according to a press release.
“We are thrilled to welcome North Mississippi Allstars to Argenta Plaza in June,” said Erica Warden, director of sales and events for the North Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau in a statement. “Our May concert for Argenta Vibe Music Series drew approximately 1,000 people to downtown North Little Rock, and we expect to at least double that on June 24.”
