Early voting: a tip for the wise

Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2008 at 4:09 PM

If you're planning to vote early, your best bet in Pulaski County is the county building at Broadway and Markham. So says Election Commissioner Kent Walker.

Why? Many more voting machines and staff than other sites. More parking. And no tickets in a two-block radius.

Best time: 5 to 6 p.m. when most people downtown have headed for home.

Worst times: 8 a.m. and the lunch hour.

Early vote so far: 42,000 by 4 p.m. today. By comparison, the total was about 50,000 in 2004. With four full days of early voting to go -- and increasing crowds -- and a fifth day at the county building only on Monday, Nov. 3, the 2004 figure should be smashed.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
