On Friday, the 12th and final day of early voting, 48,624 people made their way to the county’s 51 early voting locations.

By comparison, 420,191 votes were cast during the early vote of 2018. With one day left of early voting, it appears 2022 will fall significantly short of turnout compared to the last midterm.

Voters visited the many polling sites during early voting, but data from the elections office shows some locations were busier than others.

This midterm season, more than 1.2 million registered voters in Bexar County are making decisions on the local to the federal level, as there are cities with charter amendments and school districts with bond elections. You can see the full Bexar County ballot here.
