The run-off election for state House District 34 is a dead heat. Joy Springer and Ryan Davis each have received 372 votes in their bids to replace the late Rep. John Walker. The Pulaski County Election Commission is waiting on overseas ballots. The election commission has 10 days to finalize the vote.
UPDATE AND CORRECTION: We previously reported that there were outstanding absentee ballots. That’s not correct. There are five outstanding overseas military ballots, which were requested but may not be returned. There’s 10 days left for those to come in. And there were two provisional ballots cast that may be counted. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the Pulaski County Election Commission will meet Thursday to determine what to do if the election remains tied.
