A bump in turnout on the final day of early voting took Travis County to 64.7% turnout in early voting—with Election Day on Nov. 3 still to come.

The county surpassed 30,000 in-person voters on Oct. 30 for the first time in 10 days, bringing the total number of votes to 553,290. That is 75,702 more votes than Travis County totaled in the entirety of the 2016 presidential election.

The vast majority of those Travis County early voters have cast their ballots in person—88.4%, while just over 64,000 ballots have been cast by mail.


The county set a new record for total number of votes cast on Oct. 28, and continued soaring past that mark in the final two days of early voting. With Election Day still to go, the 64.7% turnout is now higher than the county's 61.8% mark in 2018, and on Nov. 3 it is set to blow past 2016's 65.2% turnout.
