Turnout remains high during early voting

Monday, October 26, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

With five days left of early voting, just about half of Travis County registered voters have cast ballots for the Nov. 3 election. A report from the Travis County Clerk’s Office showed 16,519 ballots cast Saturday and 10,114 on Sunday. That brings the total number of early votes to 427,071, with 56,057 of those mailed in. That’s 49.94 percent of all registered voters in the county. (For context, the total turnout record in Travis County was 66 percent, set in 2008.) Statewide, numbers continue to be similarly impressive. The Texas Tribune reported that, through Oct. 24, 42.4 percent of registered voters in Texas had already voted that’s 7,184,300 people. Early voting will continue through Oct. 30, with extended voting hours on Oct. 28, 29 and 30. A map of early voting locations, with real-time wait times, can be found on the Travis County Clerk’s site.
