Early voting about half first vote

Posted By on Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 4:29 PM

The secretary of state said early voting through today has been about 68,000. That figure doesn't cover all counties. That compares with more than 121,000 before the first primary.

Some extremely rough arithemetic: About 329,000 voted in the first Democratic Senate primary. So, if 56 percent of that number votes in the runoff, about 184,000 votes will be cast. It will take 92,000 to win.

Or thereabouts. But, early voting ran several days longer for the first primary, so it could be the final percentage will be higher, with a relatively higher percentage of votes cast election day.

In Pulaski County, the early vote through 4:30 p.m. Monday was just under 9,000 for the runoff. It was about 15,500 at 4:30 p.m. Monday before the first primary. About 44,000 voted in the Senate race in the first primary overall, counting early votes and election day.

    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.
