  •  Early voting totals in central TX (none)
    On last night's news, KXAN (NBC-36, Austin) claimed that 33% of registered voters in both Travis (includes Austin, for the political junkies out there who don't know every county in TX) and Williamson Counties voted early.

    I'm happy to say I'm in the second class, and had no trouble getting in shortly before the polls closed Monday night.

    Many of the judicial races on my ballot had only a Republican or a Republican and Libertarian -- it will be interesting to see how those turn out Tuesday night.

    I've been seeing plenty of ads for the state representative districts (three in particular) heating up for the past two weeks -- more and more negative, and definitely tied to redistricting (and thus to Tom Delay).

    Here's hoping we look back on Matt's predictions and wonder "why was he such a pessimist?"

    •  Final Travis County early voting numbers (none)
      Burnt Orange Report has them here. 37%. He's predicting 70-75% in Travis County. Sure hope everyone in CD 10 knows about Sadun.

      If we get numbers like that nationally, it would be jaw-dropping. If I'm remembering all the historic numbers right. Never can remember if people talk about 'percentage of registered voters' in the final numbers, or 'percentage of eligible voters.'
