At this hour, Beebe is addressing supporters at a 'Get Out the Vote' rally at the Victory 2006 Headquarters in downtown Jonesboro.  At 8:30, he'll address supporters in Crittenden County at another rally in West Memphis.  Beebe and his wife, Ginger, will vote early in Searcy at 10:15.

Meanwhile, election officials in Greene County said turnout for the first day of early voting in Paragould was heavy today.  In Jonesboro, Craighead County election officials described today's turnout as moderate to heavy.
