Are you looking at your sample ballot for the Nov. 8 election? There are a lot of
jobs on the ballot that Arkansans might not know what they do.
Today we highlight the job of a prosecuting attorney, who along with judges are non-partisan positions that might be on the ballot in your community.
Non-partisan means candidates for prosecuting attorney are not identified on the ballot
as a Democrat or Republican. Arkansas voters adopted this practice by approving Amendment
80 to the Arkansas Constitution in 2000.
There are 28 prosecuting attorneys in Arkansas serving in the same judicial districts as Circuit Court judges.
Prosecuting attorneys are government lawyers responsible for pursuing criminal charges
against people accused of violating state and local laws. They take the information
collected by law enforcement and explain in court why that person should be held accountable
They prosecute felony cases, juvenile cases, and misdemeanor offenses that occur outside
Some prosecuting attorneys serve multiple counties, and some stay within one county.
Term in Office:
Prosecuting Attorneys serve four-year terms. Although they are elected locally and they submit their department budgets to county
Quorum Courts, prosecutor salaries are set by the Independent Citizens Commission.
Voters created the commission by approving a constitutional amendment in 2014. The
commission reviews and sets the salaries of constitutional officers, legislators,
judges and prosecutors. Prosecuting attorneys are paid between $141,217 and $166,138
depending on the population of the counties they serve.
Over their four-year term, a prosecuting attorney is responsible for:
Additionally, prosecuting attorneys often communicate with defense attorneys to set
the terms of a plea bargain for people accused of a crime.
Early voting starts Oct. 24 and Election Day is Nov. 8. Find out what is on your ballot
