Early voting for the primary runoff election began June 29 in Texas after Gov. Greg Abbott postponed the original May date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Harris County Clerk’s Office, 154,313 county residents voted early in the July 14 election. About 72% of those voters were Democrats, and 28% were Republicans, according to county data.
Although the early voting period ended July 10, election day is Tuesday, July 14.
Nearly 84,000 Harris County residents cast ballots in person during the early voting period, and about 70,600 mail-ballots were received.
