Enthusiasm for early voting varies from east to west
Tuesday, November 1, 2022 by Jo Clifton
As of Sunday night, 166,439 Travis County voters had cast ballots in the Nov. 8 election. That’s close to 19 percent of the registered voters in the county. Southpark Meadows saw the highest number of voters (9,660) as of Sunday night. The next two places in Austin with the heaviest vote were the Austin Oaks Church near Oak Hill, which had seen 9,430 voters as of Sunday night, and the Ben Hur Shrine Center in Northwest Austin with 9,344 voters. But the PACE Campus Gym in Pflugerville beat all of them with 10,273 ballots cast. On the other hand, the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center in East Austin had seen only 1,238 voters and the community center at Del Valle had a total of 1,244 as of the end of voting on Sunday. Early voting runs through Friday, Nov. 4.
