Today is the last day for early voting in the Tuesday runoff elections in Benton County, according to the County Clerk's Office.
All early voting locations will remain open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., according to the clerk's web page postings. Those locations are: the main clerk's office in Bentonville and the satellite offices in Rogers and Siloam Springs. Those locations won't be available on election day.
Absentee ballots must arrive at the clerk's office by mail or by hand by the end of the work day Tuesday to be counted, County Clerk Betsy Harrell has said.
On Tuesday, voting will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the following sites: Lakeview Baptist Church in Cave Springs; Lowell First Baptist Church; Benton County Fair Grounds in Bentonville; Reach Church in Bentonville; First Baptist Church of Gentry and the Siloam Springs Community Building.
The races involved are both Republican primary contests with Democratic opponents in the November general election.
Kendon Underwood of Cave Springs seeks to unseat Rep. Jana Della Rosa of Rogers from her House District 90 office.
Scott Richardson of Bentonville and Delia Haak of near Gentry are running for the nomination to the House District 91 seat.
Qualified voters in either of those districts may legally vote in that district's runoff unless they voted in the Democratic primary on March 3.
District 90 extends from New Hope Road in Rogers on the north to Bethel Heights in the south. It runs from Old Wire Road on the east through Springdale and Elm Springs to the west, reaching the city limit of Highfill.
District 91 stretches from the western tip of Rogers to the Oklahoma border. It includes Gentry along with almost all of Highfill and Centerton, plus much of Cave Springs and parts of Bentonville.
State House members serve two-year terms and have an annual salary of $41,393.
