Early Voting Totals in 19 States Have Already Surpassed 2014 Midterm Turnout

With Election Day still five days away, the number of voters taking the opportunity to cast their ballot early in Texas has already topped the Lone Star state's entire 2014 turnout.

"I have worked very hard to provide funding for our county clerks to set up 24-hour drop boxes so voters can drop off their ballots any time of the day or night", Williams said in a news release.

Still, statewide, the overall percentage of ballots returned six days before the election was lagging where it was two years ago, according to the Office of the Secretary of State.

More than 1.48 million people have voted early, and more than 1.9 million people have voted by mail.

Early voting turnout is on track to mirror what we saw during the 2014 midterm elections.

Rather, many counties' high turnout seems driven by what's on the ballot locally.

The political party numbers are broken down to: 1.29 million Republican voters and 1.23 million Democratic voters.

The county operates 46 early voting locations, and more than 700 polling places will be open Tuesday. Republican Kevin Hern faces Democrat Tim Gilpin in the race for U.S. House District 1.
