Our ongoing look at straight-ticket voting trends in competitive or potentially competitive districts shifts to HD113 on the eastern edge of Dallas Co. Comprised of portions of Balch Springs, Dallas, Garland, Mesquite and Rowlett and all of Seagoville and Sunnyvale, the Republican-friendly district exhibits high rates of straight-ticket voting. More than seven out of every 10 ballots cast here in 2012 were straight-ticket votes. Five other Dallas Co. districts saw a higher rate of straight-ticket voting that year, and they are all represented by Democrats.
