Early Voting Totals, Day Three: We Are the One Percent

May 3, 2012

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.
