Voters are Fired Up!

Voters are fired up and ready to let their voices be heard at the ballot box. At the end of day one for early voting, Bexar County saw 34,021 voters come out. During the presidential election in 2016 – for day one – it was 35,431 voters.

To put this in perspective, for the 2014 midterm election, only 13,436 came out for the first day of early voting.

Today was the start of early voting, which continues until Friday, Nov. 2 at 43 sites around the city. Many people said on Bexar County Elections Department Facebook page that there were long lines and some lines were outside several voting locations.

Just two weeks ago, Bexar County Elections extended hours on Oct. 9 to prepare for the influx of new voter applications. The county department said it registered at least 40,000 more voters than the last election. Bexar County has about 1.1 million voters.
