LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Republicans are looking to win a historic majority in Arkansas' Legislature and sweep its four congressional seats.
And Democrats hope the popularity of a two-term governor prevails over the dislike of President Barack Obama.
Dozens of pivotal state House and Senate races are on the line Tuesday in an election that could hand Republicans control of the Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction.
The GOP is favored in congressional matchups around the state and Republican Mitt Romney is widely expected to win the state's six electoral votes over Obama.
Election officials have predicted that 65% of the state's 1.6 million registered voters will cast a ballot in the election, and more than 465,000 voted early or absentee through Monday.
