Early voting still popular

Monday, October 29, 2018 by Jo Clifton

Travis County voters continued to rack up impressive numbers in early vote totals this weekend, even though Sunday’s hours were abbreviated. On Saturday, 23,725 voters cast ballots and on Sunday another 12,530 voters expressed their preferences at early voting locations. In fact, the numbers are slightly higher than the number of ballots cast over the weekend during early voting for the 2016 presidential election. Together, about 4.6 percent of registered voters cast ballots during the two weekend days, bringing the total number of ballots cast so far to 218,411, which is nearly 28 percent of the county’s registered voters. Overall, in 2016 more than 51 percent of the county’s registered voters cast ballots early. The Randalls store at Research and Braker and the Randalls store at Brodie and Slaughter saw the most action this weekend. Early voting continues through Friday and election day is November 6.
