Early votes trickling in

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Early voting for the March 6 Republican and Democratic primaries started last Tuesday, and as of last night, 37,933 people have voted in Travis County, which is just 5.16 percent of the total number of registered voters in the county. Breaking down the turnout by party lines, 27,647 votes have been cast on the Democratic side (3.76 percent) and 10,286 Republican voters have shown up (1.40 percent). The busiest early voting location has been the Randalls at Research Boulevard and Braker Lane in Northwest Austin; the slowest early voting location has been the Del Valle Independent School District administration building, which has seen only 27 voters. The last day of early voting is this Friday. You can find voters’ guides here or follow the links in our previous whisper for more information about individual races.
