AR Code § 14-14-614 (2014) What's This?

(a) Ballot Title. (1) Upon receipt of an alternative county organization proposal for either a single county or multicounty which is to be referred to the electors, it shall be the duty of the members of the county board of election commissioners to take due cognizance and to certify the results of the vote cast thereon.

(2) Where the proposed measure is referred through more than one (1) or a series of ordinances, the board shall cause the ballot title of each separate ordinance to be placed on the ballot to be used in the election. The ballot shall state plainly and separately the title of each ordinance referred to the electors.

(b) Severability. If a single ordinance relating to a proposal for alternative county organization is rejected by the electors, the rejection shall not affect any other ordinance so adopted by the electors; or if any provision of an ordinance adopted by the electors for alternative county organization or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of the ordinance which can be given effect without the invalid provisions or application. The provisions of any single ordinance and the validity of each voted upon by separate ballot titles are declared to be severable.
