Lonoke County Election Commission chairman Tim Blair said Tuesday that personal electronic ballot (PEB) modules programmed for the runoff election had not yet been received. Until the PEBs are delivered early voters will have to use a paper ballot.
Lonoke County runoff early voting continues 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. today, Friday and Monday. There is no voting on Saturday and Sunday. The runoff Election Day is June 12 with polls open 7:30 a.m-7:30 p.m.
Early voting sites are at the Lonoke County Election Commisson Building, 220 Depot St., Lonoke; and the Cabot City Annex, 208 N. First St., Cabot
Blair described the turnout on the first day of early voting in the Republican runoff for sheriff as “pretty good for a runoff.” County voters are choosing between John Staley and Jason Wilkinson to face Democrat candidate Dean White in the November general election.
By about 5 p.m. Tuesday, about 70 votes had been cast at the Cabot polling station. The number might turn out to be a “first-day rush,” he said.
