Although protests were staged throughout the country, it had no effect on the outcome. Arkansas’ six electoral college votes went to Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence. The voting was held in the Old Supreme Court Room of the Arkansas State Capitol according to a release from Secretary of state Mark Martin. Several protesters also attended. *** A three-year old child was shot and killed in a road rage incident in Southwest Little Rock on Sunday.
