Voters to cast ballots early for runoff

Arkansas voters can head to the polls to cast their ballots early in the primary runoff for two congressional seats and a handful of state legislative races.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas voters can head to the polls to cast their ballots early in the primary runoff for two congressional seats and a handful of state legislative races.

Early voting begins Tuesday, with the contests for the Democratic nomination in two congressional districts headlining the June 12 election.

The secretary of state's office hasn't predicted how many voters will turn out for the runoff, but it's expected to be lower than the May 22 primary. About 22 percent of the state's 1.5 million voters cast a ballot in that election.

Prosecutor Scott Ellington and state Rep. Clark Hall are seeking the Democratic nomination for the 1st Congressional District. Hot Springs lawyer Q. Byrum Hurst and state Sen. Gene Jeffress are seeking the Democratic nomination for the 4th Congressional District.
