Just over 2,400 people cast ballots at Richardson’s polling location ahead of Election Day, according to early voting data from Dallas and Collin counties.

Richardson Civic Center was an early voting location for both counties. It will also be open Nov. 2 for Election Day voting. Residents from either county can vote at any countywide polling location during early voting and on Election Day.

The final day of early voting saw the most traffic, with more than 600 people casting ballots at the Civic Center on Oct. 29, according to Dallas and Collin counties’ election offices.

Richardson residents have one last opportunity to decide on five individual bond propositions totaling $190 million. The proposed package is largely aimed at infrastructure improvements, and it includes projects involving streets, public buildings, drainage, sidewalks and parks.

Voters can also decide on eight statewide propositions this year. A full list of the propositions can be found here.


The total number of in-person votes in Dallas County during early voting was 55,784, and the number of mail-in ballots received as of Nov. 1 was 5,130, according to the county. This translates to 4.4% of the 1.4 million registered voters in the county, according to a county spokesperson. Dallas County did not immediately respond to a request for the number of mail-in ballots.

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 3.69% of the 657,347 registered voters in Collin County, Sherbet said.
