Senator Mark Pryor visited with Region 8 residents

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Senator Mark Pryor visited with Region 8 residents on Friday to pass on a very important message: early voting.

Pryor said, “You'll see dozens of people that won't vote unless you ask them to vote.”

Pryor spoke to a full house at Sue's Kitchen in Jonesboro.

He wants people to realize the difference early voting can make in the outcome of an election.

Pryor said, “Sometimes, honestly northeast is a little bit over looked. People talk about Little Rock, of course, they talk about northwest Arkansas but they forget that this is a growing area, a vibrant area. So many good things happening here. That's why we need a big turnout in Northeast Arkansas. So, people will understand how important Northeast Arkansas is.”

Senator Pryor will be casting his early vote on Saturday in Little Rock.
