Harris County breaks all-time voter turnout record, surpassing 2016 election

Source: msn / Houston Cronicle

Harris County on Thursday broke its all-time voter turnout record with one day of early voting remaining, the Harris County Clerk’s Office announced on Twitter.

The office had not released the early voting numbers as of press time. Eight polling locations remained open overnight into Friday.

The turnout record of 1.34 million was set in the 2016 election. Texas also hit a statewide early voting milestone Monday, when the percentage of registered voters who cast ballots surpassed the total early voting turnout from any other presidential election, the Texas Tribune reported.

Harris County set its record despite the lingering COVID-19 pandemic and a flurry of lawsuits over the management of the election.

3. That's awesome

But now the word is that it isn't Democrats voting majorly. Its cons. I hope that is just speculation

4. All anecdotal and speculation.

People don't register by party in Texas. Nobody is going to know until the results come in.

7. I was thinking of all the GOTV post cards, hand written, and mailed to Texas voters.

People all over the country helped with Texas voter turn out.
