Early voting continued today (Thursday), the third day of the early voting period, for the November 3 general election.
Voter counts provided to and reported by the Secretary of State remain incomplete and, in some cases, erroneous. It appears that at least 1.75M Texans had voted through yesterday (Wednesday), and reports of turnout indicated no slowdown in voting today. It is possible that as many as 2.5M Texans – nearing 15% of registered voters – have already cast ballots.
In Harris Co., more than 100K people voted in person for the third consecutive day, bringing the combined in-person and absentee vote total to nearly 400K.
Slightly more than nine out of every 10 early voters through yesterday have previous voting history, according to Republican strategist and data nerd Derek Ryan’s analysis of 30 of the state’s largest counties.
