Texas is expected to have about 68% turnout for voting in this election. Since 1970, only once has the state of Texas exceeded 68% and that was when 2 Texas natives (GH Bush and Perot) were running and Clinton still won.
With the early voting over, Texas has already had 42% of registered voters vote in the top 15 counties in the state, which equates to 3.5 million people. In the 2004 election, only 2.4 million voted early.
To put things into further perspective, Dallas County had 508,000 people vote which is 158,000 more than 2004. People are definitely eager to get their voices heard. With Texas beinng a traditionally Red state, I wonder who all these people are voting for...
Collin County, where I live, had over half of their registered voters out early, as well as Fort Bend which is near Houston.
Predictions show a 68% turnout which would be 12% higher than the 2004 election. I love stats! I can't wait to see the final numbers and how everything breaks down tomorrow... I'm so excited!
