5,900+ early vote in Craighead Co. for primaries, Arkansas sees high mid-term early voter turnout

Over 5,900 Craighead County residents participated in early voting for the Arkansas Primary elections.

County election officials on Monday released the early vote totals, which began in Arkansas on May 9. On the last day of early voting on May 23, 1,040 voted in Jonesboro, while 118 voted in Lake City.

Based on numbers from the Arkansas Secretary of State's office obtained by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Monday, early vote totals statewide far outpaced the last midterm election in 2018, with 173,384 people voting this year. That's up by around 55%, or 61,300, voters compared to 2018.

Polls are open for the primary election today across Arkansas until 7:30 P.M. on Tuesday.
