By The Arkadelphian

A total of 1,346 Clark County voters cast a ballot during the two weeks that made up early voting. According to the Clark County Clerk’s Office, 355 voted on Monday, the final day of early voting.

In all, 11.1 percent of the county’s 12,168 registered voters participated in early voting. There was slightly less participation in this election cycle’s early voting compared to 2018. County Clerk Mona Vance said more than 1,400 voted early during the 2018 primaries.

Of those numbers, a majority chose the Republican ballot, more than 900, while nearly 400 opted for the Democratic ballot.

That’s 3.2 percent of the county’s 12,168 total registered voters.

The clerk’s office reported on its Facebook page that, of the 372 votes cast by end of day Friday, 262 had voted Republican, 101 had voted Democrat and 5 opted for the non-partisan ballot.
