LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Secretary of State Mark Martin is predicting 65 percent of Arkansas' voters will cast a ballot in the Nov. 6 election as voters began heading to the polls for early voting.

Martin's office predicted that turnout for this year's election will be slightly higher than the 2008 presidential election. There are 1.6 million registered voters in the state.

Early voting began Monday at locations around the state and will end Nov. 5. Voters can contact their county clerks to ask about early voting locations and times.

Voters will cast ballots on the presidential race and congressional races. Most of the campaign's focus has been on House and Senate races around the state. Republicans are trying to win control of the state Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction.
