TEXARKANA, Ark. -- The first week of early voting in Miller County seems steady but slightly lower than in primaries past.

By mid-afternoon Monday, about 790 county residents had cast ballots, said Tonya Bohn, deputy elections clerk.

Bohn attributed the lower turnout to difficulty voters might be having in choosing a candidate.

"It looks like early voters are having to take more time make up their minds," she said.

However, Bohn said next week's early voting could pick up. Also, turnout on Primary Day, May 24, is expected to be large.

Early voting continues during the week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the American Legion Post 25-58, 525 East Broad St. Weekend early voting will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 21-22 at the post.
