Early voting began Feb. 20. The Democratic primary had .73 percent of voters show up at the polls that day, the biggest turnout out in the first week. The largest turnout for the Republican primary was Feb. 23 with 0.26 percent.
Travis County has 735,209 registered voters.
County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir is anticipating about a 20 percent overall turnout, estimating about 12 percent for the Democratic primary and 8 percent for the Republican primary.
“We’ll have a higher turnout with the Democrats just because it’s Travis County, which is traditionally Democratic,” DeBeauvoir said. “Twenty percent is pretty good, but it’s not great.”
Early voting ends March 2. Election Day is March 6.
