More than 877,000 ballots were cast across Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties, with the majority of Dallas-Fort Worth Metro voters supporting incumbent President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden as the respective Republican Party and Democratic Party presidential nominees, according to unofficial results posted overnight.

Approximately 320,219 votes, or about 93.73% of all participating Republican voters, were cast in support of Trump as the party nominee across the four DFW Metro counties, and another 203,642 ballots, or 38.1% of Democrat voters, chose Biden to represent the Democrats in the November presidential election.

Trump also dominated the largely uncontested Republican Party primary throughout Texas, recording 94.05% of all primary votes, while Biden is projected to receive the most Democrat primary votes, about 32.41%, according to Texas Secretary of State unofficial results. U.S. Sen. Sanders, I-Vermont, received 29.72% of all statewide votes and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg earned 15.49%. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, placed fourth in the Democrat primary with 11.64% of the 1,653,588 votes counted as of 7 a.m. Central time March 4.

Here is a breakdown of preliminary results (7 a.m. March 4) of combined presidential primary votes across Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties:




U.S. Senate Primary Election


Updated 4:55p.m CST March 4

Democratic candidate Mary "MJ" Hegar and incumbent U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, were the big winners of the March 3 U.S. Senate primary election. However, it was Texas State Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, who captured the most DFW Metro votes on all Democratic ballots cast across the four-county area. Hegar garnered significantly less local support, approximately one in every five Democratic voters across Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties, and Cornyn received 257,848 votes, or 78% of all Republican votes throughout the DFW Metro.

Hegar bested the other Democratic candidates statewide with 22.28% of the nearly 1.85 million Democrat votes cast in Texas. She'll advance to a May 26 runoff against Texas state Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, who has 14.52% of votes counted. Third-place candidate Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez received 12.76% of all votes, failing to make the runoff election, which occurs between the top-two candidates if no one receives more than 50% of the vote.

Cornyn received 76.31% of the 1.95 million Republican state primary votes. He will appear as the Republican nominee on the Nov. 3 general election ballot.

Here is a breakdown of preliminary results (7 a.m. March 4) of combined Senate primary votes across Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties:
