Early voting concludes tomorrow (Friday) for the January 28 special runoff elections in HD28, HD100 and HD148.

According to Republican political consultant Derek Ryan’s analysis of the first two days of early voting, 46% of  HD28 voters have recent Republican primary voting history but no Democratic primary history. Voters with recent Democratic primary voting but no Republican primary history comprise 24% of early voters. In the November special election, six Republican candidates combined to take 61% of the vote and, had they been one candidate, would have carried 25 of the district’s 36 precincts.

In HD100, it appears that fewer than 1K people had voted early in person or by mail through the first wo days of early voting.

In HD148, fewer than 500 people voted early in person and by mail, bringing the three-day total to just shy of 3,500. Mail ballot voters are outnumbering in person voters 2-to-1.
