Montgomery County voter turnout from Tuesday’s midterm election was higher than any previous midterm election in county history. Voter runout on Tuesday was also higher than almost every previous presidential election, aside from the 2016 election.

More than 190,000 county residents voted in the election, with 139,429 residents casting early ballots and 52,119 residents voting on Election Day, according to data from the Montgomery County Elections office.

Almost two-thirds of county voters cast straight-party ballots, which is similar to the number of straight-party ballots cast in previous years. More than half of straight-party ballots cast were Republican, while 14.3 percent of voters cast straight-party Democratic ballots.
