Republican attorney general candidate Leslie Rutledge headed to the polls Tuesday to cast her early vote in the Republican runoff for the party’s nomination.

Rutledge, a former attorney for the Republican National Committee and counsel to former Gov. Mike Huckabee, is up against David Sterling, a North Little Rock attorney, in next Tuesday's primary runoff.

The secretary of state’s office predicted a light turnout for the runoff. Twenty-one percent of the state's 1.6 million registered voters cast a ballot in the May 20 primary, The Associated Press has reported.

Rutledge said she decided to vote early in case she’s not in Pulaski County on Election Day.

“We’re out campaigning across the state, and we want to make sure that people are aware that there is a runoff election,” she said.

Rutledge's focus between now and June 10 is to keep on campaigning, she said.

"We're asking people to call their friends, call their family, go to their churches and ask people to go out and vote," she said. "As long as you did not vote in the Democratic primary, you're eligible to vote in the Republican runoff."

Lisa Burnett, in her article published this morning at 11:08, obviously got the names switched in the piece about Leslie Rutledge voting early. Leslie is NOT the Jacksonville civil rights lawyer in this runoff race for Attorney General of Arkansas. The Arkansas Demo-Zette surely knows the difference between the two candidates in that they, along with Mike Huckabee and a host of others, have already endorsed Leslie for the position. This particular article needs to be corrected IMMEDIATELY.

@thebeav, the article is now corrected. The names are now transposed.
