Today is the last day of early voting in Tuesday’s Texas Primary and as of Thursday night, Democrats outnumbered Republicans at the polls in Bexar County.
“Through last night, we’ve had more than 33,000 Democrats vote and more than 26,000 Republicans vote, so there is a difference,” said Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen.
More than three dozen early voting polls will be open until 8 tonight., and during early voting, you can cast your ballot at any of those locations.
“This election turnout is running a little higher than our last mid-term primary in 2014, but it’s not as high as 2016,” said Callanen.
Voters who are unfamiliar with the Texas Primary may not know that you’ll be asked which party you prefer before you cast your ballot.
“In the primary, they have to choose either the Democratic or Republican Party. They are the only two recognized parties in Texas that hold a primary,” said Callanen.
If you don’t get a chance to cast your ballot during the early voting period, you’ll have to vote at your designated precinct on election day Tuesday, March 6.
