Early voting totals low
Friday, October 23, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
The numbers are in for the first week of early voting for the Nov. 3 election. Early voting started on Monday, Oct. 19, and as of Thursday night, an underwhelming 1.15 percent of registered Travis County voters – 7,395 – had cast ballots. So far, the busiest voting center has been the Ben Hur Shrine Center, which is located at 7811 Rockwood Lane, with 505 votes cast. In contrast, Parque Zaragoza Recreation Center at 2608 Gonzales St. has seen only 38 votes cast so far. A complete list of polling locations is available on the county clerk’s website.
