🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Heavy turnouts have been reported across Texas as early voting began for the Nov. 8 general election.

Early voting began Monday and continues through Nov. 4 as Texans make their choices for president and other races.

In some areas, early voters shattered first-day records set in 2012. Harris County reported more than 60,000 first-day voters. Election administrators in Dallas and Tarrant counties reported record first-day turnouts of about 43,000 voters in each county, and Bexar and Travis county officials reported about 30,000 first-day voters.

Texas set a record for statewide registered voters at more than 15 million, nearly 78 percent of the state’s estimated voting age population. More than 13. 6 million Texans registered to vote in 2012.
