Bexar County has surpassed 2016 total voter turnout, five days out from Election Day

As of 2 p.m. Thursday, October 29, more than 608,700 Bexar County residents cast their ballots.

BEXAR COUNTY, Texas — Even amid a global pandemic, Bexar County residents are exercising their right to vote.

As of 2 p.m. Thursday, October 29, more than 608,700 residents have cast their ballots -- either in person or by mail -- during the early voting period, according to Election Administrator Jacque Callanen.

That figure, which accounts for a 51.2% turnout, has already surpassed the total number of ballots cast in 2016, which was 598,691 accounting for a 57.7% turnout of all registered voters. 

With less than 24 hours left of early voting and all of Election Day to go, it's anyone's guess how high this year's total number of voters will get. 

Polls are open through 10 p.m. this evening and will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the final day of early voting, which is Friday, October 30.
