Early Voting Starts Today

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Early vote for this year's Presidential primary elections begins today in Region 8.

Craighead County Clerk Nancy Helms has been preparing for this day and says her department is ready.  She does think the turnout won't be as big as some think, however.

While Helms says she would love to see a big turnout, she feels it will be an average number that come to early vote.  Still, there are some who think a large number will vote early.

Early voting hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the county courthouse.
