LITTLE ROCK, AR - A turnout of 55 percent of Arkansas voters is expected in tomorrow's general election.

Secretary of State Charlie Daniels has made that prediction among the state's 1.6 million registered voters.  That would mean about 913,000 ballots cast for the midterms.

In Craighead County, more than 6,300 people had voted early as of this morning.
