Roughly 6,000 people cast ballots at polling locations in Plano during early voting, according to data from the Collin County Elections Office.

In Collin County, 21,727 residents voted in person, and 2,506 mail-in ballots were received, county Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet said. That translates to a voter turnout of 3.7% of the 657,347 registered voters in Collin County. Sherbet said he expects a final voter turnout of around 6%.

There were seven early-voting locations open to Collin County residents in Plano. The busiest location was Carpenter Park Recreation Center, which saw 1,581 voters between Oct. 18-29. The location with the fewest voters was Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, which logged 286 ballots during that same time frame.
