Little Rock voters say Super Tuesday voting was 'quick and easy'

"It was very quick. Normally, I would come in the morning before work, but I actually found it a lot quicker to come at this time during lunch."

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Some voters in multiple Little Rock polling locations say the voting process for this year's primary election was quick and easy.

When it comes to Super Tuesday, voters in Little Rock can agree on one thing.

"Quick and easy," Marc Rios said.

Yousra Moussa agreed.

“I’ve been here less than five minutes," she said.

Wait times at multiple Little Rock polling locations remained short almost all day. Some feel the short lines had to do with early voting.

"It was very quick. Normally, I would come in the morning before work, but I actually found it a lot quicker to come at this time during lunch," Rios said.

Almost 24,000 people voted early in Pulaski County this presidential primary. But, that's 2,500 fewer voters compared to 2016, when more than 26,000 voted early.

"A lot of my friends did the early voting," Moussa said.

Voters are also facing a relatively new voter ID law, especially for a major election. You must show proper ID in order to cast your vote; otherwise, you can fill out a provisional ballot.

"Yesterday, I went and tried to do the early voting and misplaced my driver's license, so I had to come back down today," Felisha McCaster said.

One hundred thirty-eight people used a provisional ballot in the 2018 primary. This year's numbers are pending. So, as long as you have your ID on hand, the process goes by pretty quickly.

"Make sure to research the topics and candidates and please get out there and vote. It doesn't work if you don't get out here and do it," Moussa said.
