Young County’s low voter turnout county-wide remained through the end of early voting in the Constitutional Amendment Election.
Young County hosted early voting for two weeks at two locations in Young County. A total of 25 voters had voted early in the election on the first day of early voting, according to Young County Elections Administrator Lauren Sullivan. Early voting ended Friday, Nov. 1, and the county had 937 votes in person, or by mail, or 8% of the 11,646 registered voters in the county.
The first week had a total of 188 voters, or around 1% of the 11,646 registered voters in the county, voting early as of the morning of Monday, Oct. 28, according to Sullivan. The county also had 300 ballot by mail submissions at that, according to the elections administrator in Young County Commissioners Court.
Young County had no local elections on the ballot, but has the 10 ballot measures approved in the 86th Legislative Session.
