LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A spokeswoman for Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin says voter turnout for Arkansas' primary election has been about what was expected.

Polls opened at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday and spokeswoman Laura Labay says that while she didn't immediately have precise numbers, the turnout appears to be typical for a primary election.

Martin has predicted 20 percent of Arkansas' 1.6 million voters will cast a ballot in Tuesday's primary, the first statewide test of a new voter ID law.

Labay said she has heard of no problems at voting locations in the state and that there are no reports of inclement weather that could hold down the turnout.
