Congratulations, Austin. You’ve cracked one percent!
Yesterday’s early voting totals in the Austin city election were in line with what we’d seen all week, with 1,918 ballots cast. That covers both in-person voting and voting by mail. And it brings the total count to 6,117 – or 1.28% of registered voters.
The Northwest Austin Randalls, at Research and Breaker, led the day again, delivering 221 votes. Meanwhile, the Parque Zaragoza Recreation Center in East Austin served as low vote-getter, with a scant 19 ballots cast.
It’s still early going in early voting, with citizens having until May 8 to vote at any one of the 18 polling places KUT News has mapped for you below. Election day is May 12.
