It's funny that there was so little reaction to the claim I consider more serious -- lack of Democratic primary ballots, at least in England. Maybe there weren't enough Dem races there (they're 1st District so they had no congressional races; they also can't vote for Lonoke mayor), but there should have been either Dem ballots or a notice that there were no Dem races so Dems vote on the nonpartisan ballot. (Arkansas case law is clear that judges cannot extend polling hours over minor irregularities such as late opening precincts.)
