The details

In early voting, there were 16,996 ballots cast in Williamson County, which represents roughly 3.94% of Williamson County's 431,845 registered voters.

A small portion of Round Rock's voters reside in Travis County, with a total of four votes tallied in the May election so far.

Prior to election day, voter statistics indicate a decrease in total early voter turnout, with just under 4% of registered voters participating in this year’s election.

However, totals from ballots cast May 4 have yet to be released. Polls closed at 7 p.m., although voters who were in line at 7 p.m. were still able to cast ballots.

For context, during the last May election in 2023, roughly 9.22%, or a total of 33,566 people, voted countywide. This included both early and election day voters, with a total of 364,020 voters registered in the county.
