|Elections in Arkansas|
The 1872 United States presidential election in Arkansas took place on November 5, 1872, as part of the 1872 United States presidential election. Voters chose six representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.
Arkansas voted for the Republican candidate, Ulysses S. Grant, over Liberal Republican candidate Horace Greeley. Grant won Arkansas by a margin of 4.34%. However, due to the turbulent conditions of Reconstruction, Congress did not certify Arkansas's six electoral votes. Neighboring Louisiana's electoral votes were also not counted. This was the last time Arkansas voted Republican until 1972.
