  • VOTING DAY: Kurrus and Scott make their final pitch.

Runoff elections in Pulaski County are today. The polls are open and close at 7:30 p.m. Around 15,000 have already cast early votes.

Frank Scott Jr.
is facing off against Baker Kurrus in the runoff for Little Rock mayor. Scott topped the Nov. 6 general election with 37 percent of the vote, falling short of the 40-percent threshold to win outright. Kurrus finished second with 29 percent, squeaking by Warwick Sabin in a field of five candidates.

In Jacksonville, Bob Johnson and Patrick Thomas are also in a runoff for mayor; incumbent Kenny Elliott is taking on a challenge from Jeff Elmore in a City Council run-off for Ward 1, Position 1; and incumbent Kevin McCleary is seeking re-election against Gary Sipes in a City Council runoff for Ward 2, Position 1.

Here are the polling locations, but note these temporary changes, for this runoff election only:
