BENTONVILLE — More than 2,000 people have voted early in the Bentonville School District's millage election.

On Wednesday, the second day of the early-voting period, 1,091 people voted at one of five sites, bringing the two-day total up to 2,093, according to Tena O'Brien, Benton County clerk.

That's already more than one-fifth of the total number of votes cast in the School District's last millage election in June 2012. Voters are weighing a 2.9-mill tax increase to build a second high school. The election is Tuesday. Early voting continues through Monday.
