Here in Conway, a record number of voters turned out for early voting on Tuesday afternoon.
County Clerk Melinda Reynolds said as of 3 p.m. Tuesday, the number of people who had early voted totaled 2,600. The typical number of voters by the second afternoon of early voting is 500 or 600, she said.
She said there have been no major problems with early voting so far, only minor issues, such as a couple of paper jams.
A few elections ago, my wife and I voted early. We stood in line for well over an hour.
The next time we voted, we decided to wait and go on Election Day. We ended up waiting for maybe 30 minutes or less, and everything went smoothly.
In addition, it seemed more exciting and patriotic to vote on Election Day. We then went home and stayed up half the night to see who won.
Based on our past voting experiences, we've decided from now on we'll wait and vote on November 4th.
