We’ve just come through another “big” general election in Pea Ridge. The turnout was sizable, with about 1,270 voters coming to the polls at the EMS Building. In addition to that local Election Day turnout, I’m sure there were several absentee voters and a considerable number of early voters from our area. As I compare elections today and elections as they used to be, the early voting is one of the new things. Early voting seems to be catching on. One of the ideas that move people to vote early is the hope to avoid the crowds and waiting lines.
