Early voting numbers remain anemic
Wednesday, December 3, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
The numbers were down on the second day of early voting for the Dec. 16 runoff election. While on the first day 0.94 percent of registered Travis County voters cast ballots, on Tuesday only 0.75 percent — or 4,167 people — did. That means a total of 9,351 people have voted so far in the runoff election. As was the case throughout most of the November election, the highest turnout was at the Randalls at Research Boulevard and Braker Lane. That location saw 572 votes cast Tuesday. The lowest turnout at a designated voting location was the Pflugerville County Tax Office with 21 votes cast, but mobile voting locations at the Manor ISD Administration Building and Brookdale Beckett Meadows had turnouts in the single digits. All told, 1.69 percent of those registered in Travis County have voted so far. Early voting continues through Dec. 12. Get more information here.
