Voter turnout low in runoff pair

Early voting in a pair of runoff elections has been a painstaking process with only 150 voters turning out in three days leading up to the Tuesday Election Day, according to representatives of the Union County Clerk’s Office.

The contenders include Sen. Gene Jeffress and Q. Byrum Hurst for the U.S. fourth congressional district and Union County Justice of the Peace John Baine and Albert Glenn Glover for the state representative district 7 seat.

Whoever wins the former will face off against Republican Tom Cotton in November, whereas the latter will win the seat outright.

Early voting runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday at the clerk’s office. Election Day ballots can be cast from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at all regular polling sites.
