MARION, Ark. (AP) -- Voters have decided at the polls in east Arkansas in a special election for a House seat vacated by a former Harlem Globetrotter.
Voters cast their ballots Tuesday to choose a new representative in state House district 54 to replace former Rep. Fred Smith.
Democrat Hudson Hallum received 987 votes; Republican John Geelan received 415 and independent candidate D'James "Two" Rogers received 537.
Smtih resigned from his Crittenden County seat in January after he was convicted of felony theft.
