Arkansas — With the specter of bad weather moving into the state on Primary Election Day Tuesday, clerk’s offices have been reporting a heavier than normal turnout today. However, some have reported a heavier turnout across the board.
Spokesmen for the crucial Pulaski County, which includes Little Rock, have described the early voter turnout as “tending toward heavy.”
Washington County, with Fayetteville and its University of Arkansas student population boosting numbers, has reported early voting as “heavy — There’s been a lot of voters.”
Craighead County, with Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, said the turnout today was heavier, with more than 1,000 voters today, but described the early voter turnout as about 10 per cent of the registered voters.
Up along the Arkansas/Missouri state line, Fulton, Sharp and Randolph Counties have reported an average early voter turnout. Randolph County, however, said the turnout was running about 10 per cent, which was described as “not bad for early voting.”
