LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Turnout in the Arkansas primary has been mixed, with polling locations in hot races seeing steady crowds Tuesday while other spots have hosted few voters.
A west Little Rock precinct that hosted voters from two competitive state Senate districts had voters arrive at an average of nearly one per minute after voting started at 7:30 a.m. In a mid-city Little Rock precinct, as much as 20 minutes passed between voters.
The secretary of state's office predicted that 30 percent of the state's voters would go to the polls, but estimates fell after early voting was slow.
Highlighting Tuesday's vote are competitive congressional primaries in eastern and southern Arkansas.
