Early voting in person has ended in Texas. Yesterday’s (Thursday’s) total early votes cast in the 15 counties with the most registered voters crossed the 4M mark for the first time in state history. Through 11 days, early voting turnout is 35% ahead of 2012, 29% ahead of 2008 and 95% ahead of 2004. Same-day turnout was 21% ahead of the corresponding Thursday in 2012 but 8% less than in 2008.
Record turnout had been set by 12 of the 15 counties earlier this week. Nueces and Tarrant Cos. set its record today (Friday), and Dallas Co. was also expected to set a new record.
