Smooth Voting in Jonesboro

 JONESBORO (KAIT) - With 23 polling locations in Craighead county, election day could be a day full of problems. So how did the voting process go?

  Aside from minor problems election day went quite smoothly.

  Even though the election process itself is moving along smoothly, one thing I noticed at the polls we visited was the lack of voter turn out.

 For instance at the Convocation center by late morning Precinct 9 had barely broke 100 voters.

 It could be the lack of uncontested races. Hopefully in November the turnout will be larger.

 Election officials told me that they expect the numbers to jump up after school and factory shift changes and people are going home after work.
