Early voting ending in Texas after setting turnout record

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Early voting in Texas ends in a matter of hours, but a record number of people statewide have already cast early ballots for the Nov. 8 election.

Early voting began Oct. 24 and ends at 7 p.m. Friday.

Through Wednesday, though, more than 3.6 million Texans had voted in the state’s 15 largest counties alone.

That accounts for 37 percent of all registered voters in Texas and already exceeds the record 3.5-plus million early votes cast before the 2008 election.

Texas also set a record for statewide registered voters at more than 15.1 million this election cycle, or nearly 80 percent of the state’s estimated voting age population.

More than 13.6 million Texans were registered in 2012, though only just below 8 million actually voted statewide.
