The Party Line

About the Charts

The geographic breakdown includes the entire county -- except, of course, in the city races.

The city races also include four Williamson County boxes (some combining more than one precinct) in the "Northwest" column.

The bulk of out-of-town boxes are to be found in the North/Northeast, Northwest, and Southwest areas.

Turnout figures for the city are based only on boxes lying predominantly within the city limits (which does not include the Williamson Co. boxes).

Similarly, the "City" and "County" columns reflect totals for boxes lying predominantly in- or out-of-town; more boxes than you may realize straddle the city limits.

Libertarians were omitted except in three cases: the U.S. Rep. District 10 and Court of Criminal Appeals Place 3 races, where the Libs were the only opposing candidates, and the Land Commissioner race, where the Lib scored enough votes to decide the outcome. Keep this in mind when looking at the statewide-race percentages, which will not match those you saw last week.
