As of polls closing Thursday night, Texans have cast more than 2.6 million votes during early voting in the presidential election.
That tally includes roughly 2.16 million in-person votes and almost 500,000 mailed ballots, according to data from the Associated Press.
Nearly 16% of all registered voters in the state have already cast a ballot, according to the Texas Tribune.
In 2016, early voting was limited to two weeks instead of the expanded three-week period in 2020 due to COVID-19.
In just the first three days of early voting this year, Texans amassed 40% of their entire advance turn out in 2016.
In San Antonio’s Bexar County, nearly 109,000 people cast in-person ballots in the first three days of early voting this year. Another 56,000 have cast ballots via mail in Bexar County so far.
That means 14% of all 1.1 million registered voters in Bexar County have already voted, the Tribune reported.
Around the country, more than 22 million Americans have already cast a ballot, according to the U.S. Elections Project.
Texans can cast a ballot every day from now until Oct. 30, and then on Election Day Nov. 3.
