HARRISON, Ark. (AP) - Early voting is set to begin in the special Republican primary runoff for a seat in the Arkansas state Senate.

Voting begins Tuesday and runs through Monday in the race for the GOP nomination to the Senate District 16 seat that includes Newton and Pope counties and parts of Boone, Carroll and Van Buren counties.

Greg Standridge and Stan Berry are candidates to succeed Republican former Sen. Michael Lamoureux. Lamoureux resigned to become chief of staff for Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Standridge received nearly 48 percent of the votes in a January special election while Berry received just more than 41 percent in a three-person race that attracted just 9.7 percent of registered voters.

No Democrats filed for the seat.

Early voting will be available during regular courthouse business hours.
