Travis County hit the 50% threshold of voter turnout on Oct. 26, the end of the second full week of early voting. There are four days left in the early voting period before it closes Oct. 30, then voters will have another chance to cast their ballots on Election Day Nov. 3.
The total number of votes cast in Travis County so far is 448,419, 52.4% of all registered voters. That exceeds the county's total early voting numbers from the November 2018 gubernatorial election (47.74%) and the 2016 presidential election (51.8%).
Residents can vote at any of Travis County's 37 early voting centers through the rest of the week.
Beginning on Oct. 28, five of those centers will remain open an extra two hours until 9 p.m. Those locations, which the county calls megacenters, are located in Austin at the Austin Central Library, Southpark Meadows, Ben Hur Shrine Temple and Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex, and in Pflugerville at the Pflugerville ISD Rock Gym.
Editor's Note: This story has been updated to reflect that five early voting megacenters will remain open until 9 p.m. Oct. 28-30.
