UPDATE: See the final countywide tallies for the city propositions and the county's portion of the statewide constitutional amendments.

The Travis County Clerk’s Office has released early voting results. Please remember that these are ONLY the early voting numbers and ONLY the numbers for Travis County.

The constitutional amendments are being considered statewide, so the numbers below are only a portion of the total.

The County Clerk's Office reports that 100,632 people voted in person or by mail during the early voting period, which ended Friday; as of 4pm, more than 53,000 had voted in person today.
