Final Results for Travis County's March 3 Democratic Primary Election

Numbers ONLY include Travis County voters

Photo by Jana Birchum

It's all over now, though the math of delegate allocation and the trickle of mail-in ballots will play out over the next few days. Here's what happened on the Dem side (the GOP primary is mostly boring this year); for statewide and multi-county (Congress, State Board of Education) numbers, go to Texas Secretary of State for complete returns.

Candidates must get 50% of the votes in their race to avoid a run-off (except for the presidential race, naturally). Please remember that these are ONLY the numbers for Travis County. The state and national races listed below only include Travis County votes.
