LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - With just three days in, early voting totals in Arkansas reach into the tens of thousands. THV's Liz Massey was live Wednesday outside an early voting site in downtown Little Rock to get an understanding of what state officials say are impressive turnouts, and what underlying issues may be driving it.
Polling sites around the state have seen steady streams of voters. According to the Secretary of State's office, more than 60,000 ballots have been cast since Monday and the official election day is still nearly two weeks away.
Alex Reed, spokesperson for the Secretary of State's office, says the turnout is largely attributed to the local races. "Just like in 2008, we're not necessarily a targeted state presidentially, but this year, different than past years, the state legislative races are being targeted and there seems to be a lot of money being spent on both sides," says Reed.
