LITTLE ROCK, AR - In St. Francis County, which has had problems getting early voting started because of a lack of paper ballots, voters are now able to cast ballots.  The county had had to sort through confusion caused by more versions of the ballots than they had expected.

The county had ordered 18 different ballot styles, accounting for different races that residents of different precincts can vote on.  But officials say they received 75 different styles from the printer.
