The first day of Early Voting has come and gone...
Unless the numbers are adjusted, in-person turnout in Bexar County is down from 2010.
On the first day of Early Voting in 2010 (Oct. 18), Bexar County saw 14,672 people vote. This year 13,436 people went and voted on the first day. We're down by 1,236 voters or 8.4% if I did the percentage correctly. We don't yet have the mail ballot numbers, so maybe they saw an increase. In terms of totals votes on the first day of Early Voting remember 19,571. That's the total of in-person and mail ballots on the first day in Bexar County. Unless the in-person numbers get adjusted, we'll need 6,136 mail in ballots to surpass 2010.
The top 10 Early Voting sites follow their usual pattern:
1. Brookhollow Library: 905
2. Wonderland of the Americas: 680
3. Semmes Library: 611
Lion's Field: 611
5. Great Northwest Library: 588
6. Maury Maverick Library: 567
Parman Library @ Stone Oak: 567
8. Tobin Library @ Oakwell: 553
9. Bexar County Justice Center: 549
10: Cody Library: 520
The Early Voting sites at the colleges (UTSA, Northwest Vista, Palo Alto, SAC) saw a total of 427 voters.
I would have been shocked if Brookhollow and Semmes weren't in the Top 5, let alone the Top 10.
Wendy Davis is going to UTSA tomorrow, so it'll be interesting to see if there is an uptick in their numbers.
