Common Ground Arkansas supports leaders who put good ideas and the good of Arkansans ahead of partisanship.

 

Welcome to the Movement

We’re glad you’re here. Let’s get to work.

A divisive two-party system is holding Arkansas back.
Here’s how Common Ground Arkansas can help.

Support problem solving leaders loyal to Arkansans

Work toward Arkansas-first legislation that addresses the problems we face

Protect Arkansas voter power and increase voter choice at the ballot box

Common Ground Arkansas conducted a poll in June 2022 to gauge how satisfied Arkansas voters are with their role in the political process. Turns out, not very.

Voters feel ignored. They feel like parties have too large a role in selecting candidates. And they overwhelming feel like voters down have enough power.

We agree.  Let’s get to work.
