Election Day Open Line
There are several run-off elections in Northwest Arkansas today. The mayoral races in Springdale and Fayetteville have drawn the most attention, but there are some hotly contested city council seats on the ballot as well.
Does anyone have any solid predictions (not mere wishes) to post before 7:30? Let's start with turnout, then go for results.
Of more interest, how about some informed analysis once we get some votes reported? Will the Early and Absentee votes set the trend for the final tally? Did all the last minute electioneering make any difference? Will those voting today be more likely to favor one of the candidates more convincingly?
According to the television news, the Washington County Election Commission will report the Early Voting (3,004) and Absentee Ballot (544) totals at 8:00 p.m. You can see the results on its official website as soon as they are announced. Baring unforeseen shenanigans, the unofficial final results should be available by 9:30 p.m. tonight.
