Arkansas rules seem contradictory

Write-in Candidates
Write-in candidates are not allowed in presidential, municipal, or primary elections. [ACA
§§7-5-525, 7-8-302, 14-43-202]
Federal, State, and District Offices [ACA §§7-5-205, 7-6-102]:
 Must file a written notice of write-in candidacy with the county board of election
commissioners of each county in which the candidate seeks election and the Secretary of
State no later than the last day of the party filing period.
 Must file a political practices pledge and an affidavit of eligibility for the office with the
Secretary of State at the same time of filing the notice of write-in candidacy.
County and Township Offices [ACA §§7-5-205, 7-6-102]:
 Must file a written notice of write-in candidacy with the county board of election
commissioners and the county clerk no later than the last day of the party filing period.
 Must file a political practices pledge and an affidavit of eligibility for the office with the
county clerk at the same time of filing the notice of write-in candidacy.
A write-in candidate for federal, state, district, county, and township office seeking
election at the November 6, 2012 General Election must file no later than March 1, 2012.

If they do allow it, then the deadline to file has passed.
