At least 5.32M straight-ticket Republican and Democratic votes were cast by Texans in last week’s general election, a new record for the state, and the number could top 5.5M.

Straight-ticket Republican and Democratic votes represent 62% of all votes cast for president in the 170 of the state’s 254 counties from which we have received data. These counties account for 96% of all votes cast for president. This percentage is right about the same as in 2012 (61.7%) and 6.4 percentage points above 2008 (55.6%).
