Early voting in person continues through Friday. Turnout continues to be record-setting but has shown signs of slowing down in the 15 counties with the most registered voters. Monday’s turnout was significantly down in counties that reported results by this evening.

Through Sunday, 2.66M Texans had voted early in those 15 counties, a 42% increase above the first seven days of early voting in 2012, 50% above 2008 and 145% above 2004. This was the fourth straight day that those percentages have declined and the sixth straight day that the percentage comparisons to 2008 and 2012 have declined. In other words, turnout is getting less ahead of prior years’ totals each day.
