Early Voting continues for the November 6 general and constitutional amendment election through November 3. Turnout continues to be very light across most of the state. Through Sunday, the seventh day of early voting, just over 1.2% of registered voters had cast ballots in person or by mail in the state’s 15 most populous counties.
Among those 15 counties, turnout has been highest in Hidalgo Co., where 3.1% of registered voters had cast ballots in person or by mail through Sunday. Seven cities there have contested elections. Travis Co. is second at 2.3%. Voters there will decide the fate of a $1B school district bond package, the largest anywhere in the state, and a pair of county transportation bond packages. Voters statewide have seven constitutional amendment propositions on their ballots. Voters in about five dozen counties have been asked to approve about $11B in bond propositions, and local offices are on the ballot in a few dozen school districts and mostly small municipalities.
