More than 1,187,007 Texans have already voted in the midterm election

In the second day of early voting, 955,694 Texans cast in-person ballots and 231,313 cast mail-in ballots in the 30 counties where most registered voters in the state — 78 percent — live. That turnout equals 59 percent of the total votes cast in those counties during the entire two-week early voting period in the last midterm election in 2014. So far this year, 9.7 percent of the 12.3 million registered voters in those 30 counties have voted.

Each day, as more data comes in, the graphs below will be updated to show cumulative in-person and mail-in ballot turnout in these counties. Texas is widely expected to surpass its 2014 voter turnout, and more than half of all those who do vote are expected to cast their ballots early. Some have speculated turnout this year could approach that of the past two presidential elections. Early voting for the 2018 midterms in Texas started Oct. 22 and runs through Nov. 2.
