2,421

Fewest votes cast in a special runoff election for a Texas legislative seat since 1996. Four of the 10 lowest turnouts for a special runoff election have occurred in the 2015-16 election cycle:

  • 2,421 – HD124 in April 2015
  • 3,514 – HD143 in December 2005
  • 3,589 – HD118 in January 2016
  • 4,252 – HD115 in February 2000
  • 4,362 – HD118 in June 1997
  • 6,217 – HD29 in January 2007
  • 6,736 – HD14 in December 2011
  • 7,969 – HD17 in February 2015
  • 8,120 – HD123 in February 2015
  • 8,572 – HD43 in May 2003

While the HD120 and HD139 special runoff elections fall on the uniform election date, there are not many other races going on in those precincts. In fact, there are no other contests in Harris Co., where 1,053 people have voted by mail and 43 have voted in person during early voting’s first two days.
