First day of early voting sets record in Dallas County, elsewhere in Texas

Jalen Williams hugged his mom after he voted. Hannah Brown did a happy dance. Miles Griffin posted a selfie on social media encouraging others to head to the polls.

“Dallas, it’s voting time!” the caption read, referencing the catchphrase of the superhero group known as The Power Rangers that adorned his sweatshirt.

The three Dallasites joined hundreds of thousands of Texans across the state in casting their ballots in the presidential election Tuesday, the first day of early voting for the Nov. 3 election.

Early voting continues through Oct. 30. Some counties have special hours for polling locations. Voters should check with their county elections departments for more information on when and where they can vote.

Turnout for the matchup between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was heavy statewide, breaking records in some areas, including Dallas County. Voters began queuing up before dawn and stood in line — many for more than two hours — to record their preference in what is expected to be a generational election defined by the coronavirus pandemic, economic turmoil and racial reckoning.
