A combined total of 46,979 ballots were cast in the county, where 392,247 people are registered to vote. That is slightly lower—by 2,475 ballots—than total ballots cast in 2019, the last non-presidential election year. In 2019, 49,454 ballots were cast. That year, 344,244 people were registered to vote in the county.
County polling numbers among its 94 precincts show 51.1% of total ballots cast in the election were submitted on Election Day.
Historically, Williamson County non-presidential elections have drawn a fraction of the voter turnout seen during presidential and midterm election years. Data from the county shows that even among non-presidential election years, voter turnout is on the rise, as can be observed in 2019 and preliminary 2021 data, when compared to non-presidential elections held in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
While Williamson County voters did not break any records—unlike the 2020 election, where a record 75% of registered voters cast their ballots—data points to the possible beginning of a trend of increased voter turnout for non-presidential election years.
