Over one million people voted early in Texas.

In 2004, just over 800,000 voted -- period -- in the primary. 

When all was said and done, the increase in early vote totals in Texas' top 14 counties alone almost exceeded the 2004 totals. Here is the final early vote totals -- tomorrow, we see the real thing.

almost? (0.00 / 0)
maybe you didn't major in math ;)

867,547 is greater than 800,000


maybe you didn't major in reading (0.00 / 0)
In 2004, just over 800,000 voted -- period -- in the primary.

867,547 is simply the total of the top 14 counties EV in 2008 for the Democratic primary (which doesn't include the other 250 counties which don't report to the SOS but certainly push the total number over 1,000,000 EV for this primary.

Phillip's got it.

I wrote it wrong (and now I've fixed it).

I meant to write the increase in early vote totals...

Now, a very great man once said that some people rob you with a fountain pen.

Are these numbers just for democrats or are they for both parties?

Just Dems (0.00 / 0)

Hildalgo beats out Travis! (0.00 / 0)
Hidalgo wins the prize for the highest turnout (as a percentage of registered voters) among the big 15. Travis still wins the prize for the highest increase (13.76%). Fort Bend comes in second (12.10%), with an amazing 14-fold increase from 2004.

Hidalgo had the highest number of early voters in 2004, more than bigger counties like Harris, Dallas, Travis and Bexar. This year they're only 6th in raw numbers, which has to be a disappointment for Clinton. I wonder if the pollsters are taking early turnout into account in their models.

Do we expect a super-heavy turnout tomorrow, or has everybody but me already voted?  


Early Voting Totals (0.00 / 0)
The Early totals,in the Early Voting, for Bexar, El Paso, Hidalgo, Nueces, etc seemed to be lower than Early Voting totals in Dallas,Houston and Travis County.

That indicated to me that Hillary might be in trouble. Hispanics in our last contested mayoral race did not vote early and, in fact, Mayor Hardberger got enough early votes to win the election before Election Day votes for Julain Castro were counted.

However, the Hispanic Early Votes seems to have surged in the last days of Early Voting in the Hispanic South Texas Counties....Is the Hillary Organization finally working?

Early voters mean you can work on getting more people to the polls on  Election Day..

Any thoughts form you guys?

always surges in the last days of early voting.  Everywhere, including Travis.
