Numbers smash previous year tallies
Over the first two days of early voting, 1,421 registered Uvalde County residents had voted early, racking up a tally usually reached later in the absentee balloting period – especially for a midterm election.
In 2016 and 2012, both presidential election years, the first two days of voting brought out 1,118 and 945 voters, respectively. The 1,400 mark was breached after three and four days, respectively. In 2008, another presidential year, the first two days of early voting produced 1,035 people. In 2004, approximately 900 people voted over the first two and a half days of early voting.
In 2014 and 2010, the tallies for the first two days were 516 and 641, respectively, and it took about seven days to reach this year’s two-day tally.
