Wednesday, October 24, 2012 • Posted October 29, 2012

Just a day and half into early voting, and by noon on Tuesday, there had been 1,241 votes cast in the 2012 election.

Monday saw 830 voters at the poll, with Kingsland Library having the most at 323 voters, Llano Library saw 307, and the Horseshoe Bay POA had 200.

In regards to how things were going on Tuesday, Cindy Ware, Llano County Elections Administrator said, “It’s strong again today – don’t know whether folks were waiting for the debate, or if it’s going to be strong and heavy voting for all of Early Voting.”

By Tuesday at noon, 411 more ballots were cast.

In the 2008 Presidential election, there were 9,813 ballots cast in Llano County. Ware says that they are anticipating approximately twenty percent more voters than that this year, or roughly 12,000

She warns that about half of those will vote on Election Day, so they are pushing folks to vote early and avoid the rush and the lines.

714 ballots have been mailed out to eligible voters so far and the Elections Department is anticipating over 1000 going out for this election.

If you haven’t voted, take advantage of no lines and vote early.
