Light Turnout

Early turnout is slow in Washington County millage elections for West Fork and Prairie Grove school districts, said Washington County Clerk Becky Lewallen. As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, one ballot had been cast in the Prairie Grove election and four ballots in the West Fork Election.

Prairie Grove is asking voters for a 6-mill tax increase to build a new wing at the intermediate school, a storm shelter and a high school varsity basketball gym. West Fork is seeking a 2-mill increase to add classrooms, restrooms and a physical education gym at the middle school.

The school election is Tuesday. Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
