I’m not going to create a daily spreadsheet of the early voting totals by location this election, as life is just too short. I do have a spreadsheet showing the 2006 dailies by location, thanks to Hector DeLeon in the County Clerk’s office, from which I can tell you that there were 24,602 early and 8,648 mail ballots cast in Harris County in the Republican primary as of the end of the EV period (more mail ballots came in after that), out of a total of 82,989 total ballots, or 40%; and 10,933 such ballots on the Democratic side – 8,760 in-person and 2,173 mail – out of 35,447 total, or 31%. On Day One of this year, there were 2,774 in-person GOPers plus 5,946 returned mail ballots, and 2,190 Dems plus 2,886 mailers. Based on that, I will say with confidence that there will be more Democratic ballots cast this year, and that they will be a larger share of the total early amount. We’ll see how it goes, and I’ll take a stab at guessing turnout later on. So tell me, who out there did their duty today, and how busy was it where you were? Leave a comment and let us know.
