Day Four of Early Voting

Turnout remains solid, slow

Four days down, five to go in early voting for the May 10 elections, and according to the Travis County Elections Division, ballots cast finally cracked the magic "1% of all registered voters" mark. Woot! Numbers stayed pretty consistent in the 1,700 to 1,800 voters per day range. Fans of mobile voting can probably count the results as a victory, because the four mobile voting teams have collected 748 ballots: that's over 10% of the total votes cast.
