Arkansas’ early voting for the state’s May 18th primaries begins on Monday and turnout is expected to be among its highest in years.
Secretary of State Charlie Daniels, the state’s chief election officer, estimated that turnout for the primaries could be between 30% and 35%.
That means that as many as 480,000 or more of Arkansas’ 1.6 million registered voters could turn out to the polls.
Voting will be available from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday until the Monday before the election, when voting will be available from 8 am to 5 pm.
Polls will be open from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm on Election Day.
