Harris Co. saw its one millionth voter today, the first time any Texas county has had 1M ballots cast early. According to the county clerk’s office, 1.02M people have voted in person (876K) and by mail (145K) through the end of today. Approximately 103K mail ballots have yet to be returned. In the 2016 general election, just under 100K of the 1.3M Harris Co. voters cast ballots by mail.

In a normal general election year, early voting would have ended on its second Friday. Instead, one more week remains. Sometime today (Friday), early voting turnout statewide will set an all-time record for number of votes cast. The state entered the day about 185K voters short of the previous record set in 2016.
