Tarrant County Early Voting for Weeks 1 and 2
Tarrant County is seeing a high turnout at the polls but has yet to surpass 2016 early voting numbers:
Early voting in Texas kicked off on Tuesday as voters headed to the polls to cast their ballot for federal, state and local candidates. Despite the pandemic, people are turning up at the polls in record numbers.
According to the Tarrant County elections website, 36,666 early voting ballots have already been cast as of 4:18 p.m., which represents 3.06% of all registered voters in the county. In the 2016 presidential election, there were a total of 43,149 ballots cast on the first day of early voting in Tarrant County, or 4% of all registered voters within the county.
Ahead of the Nov. 3 general election, which experts said may garner one of the highest voter turnout rates of any election in recent years, many Texans will likely be voting for the first time this fall.
While the actual voting method can vary based on the polling location and type of election, voters in Texas can expect the in-person voting process to follow the same basic steps.
