7,800 vote early in election

More than 7,800 registered Wharton County voters were expected to cast ballots in the governor’s race by the time the last early polls closed Friday.

The 31% turnout seen locally by mid-day Friday far exceeds the statewide averages which were running under 20% in metro counties during the early voting period, but well below record voter turnouts in 2020 and 2018.
