Local, state races increase
interest in Tuesday's election

Gretchen Hunt

While Tuesday's ballot will not include a presidential election, Lawrence County voters are showing a high level of interest, according to County Clerk Tina Stowers.

Stowers said as of Tuesday morning more than 500 voters had already cast ballots during early voting, which will continue through Monday.

Heated races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general, along with an abundance of local races, have created increased interest.

Other races of interest are for U.S. representative, state senate and state representative.

In Lawrence County, there are mayoral races in Walnut Ridge, Hoxie, Imboden and Sedgwick. There are also many other city races, including several alderman races throughout the county.

Sample ballots of all contested races that will appear on ballots in Lawrence County can be found on page 13C of this week's edition of The Times Dispatch.

In addition, voters will decide two proposed issues. The first regards the legalization of raffles and the game of bingo as fund-raisers for non-profit organizations. The second is pertaining to the issuance of higher education bonds for technology and facility improvements at Arkansas colleges and universities.

The polls will be open on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
