Secretary Thurston released the following statement about this new program: “Mobile Offices are about bringing services of the Arkansas Secretary of State to rural areas of the state. A lot of folks may want information about becoming a Notary Public, starting a business, or visiting the State Capitol, but don’t know who to call or how to get started. The Mobile Offices solve that by bringing staff to counties and inviting people to come, talk to our staff, and get connected to services.”
