It looks like activist Denise Ennett and businessman Darrell Stephens will face off in a Sept. 3 Democratic primary run-off election to represent Little Rock’s House District 36. Governor Hutchinson called the special election after Charles Blake resigned from the House to become Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott Jr.’s chief of staff. With all precincts counted, Ennett had 33 percent of votes (446) and Stephens had 31 percent (418). Ennett got the most votes today and in the early vote.
Philip Hood got 20 percent, Roderick Talley got 11 and Russell Williams received 5 percent.
Turnout was very low. 1,359 voted among 15,908 registered voters.
