Second day tallies are in for early voting in the Austin city elections.
1,821 Austinites went to the polls yesterday – a hair's-breadth better than Monday's number of 1,779. Add in ballots received by mail, which exhibited a drop-off from day one, and a total of 2,026 ballots were cast yesterday. That brings Austin’s grand vote total to 4,200 – or .88% of registered voters. That’s almost one percent.
A Randalls in Northwest Austin, at Research and Breaker, lead day two, delivering 213 votes. By contrast, only 16 people voted at East Austin’s George Washington Carver Complex, the low vote-getter of the day.
Early voting ends on Tuesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. There’s 18 locations where voters can cast an early ballot. You can find an early voting location in a map KUT News created below.
Election Day for Joint General and Special elections is scheduled for May 12.
