Primary Early Voting Up for Brazos County GOP, Down for Dems

Just three more days to vote early for the May 29 Texas primaries. In Brazos County, voter turnout in one primary is way up, and way down in the other.

Nearly 2,900 voters have cast ballots in the Republican primary. That's more than 600 more votes than in the last presidential year.

Less than 300 ballots have been cast through today in the Democratic primary, a big difference from 2008 when more than 2,700 votes were cast.

Early voting ends Friday evening.

News 3 will have complete Election Night coverage on air and online on May 29.

Runoffs, if necessary, would be held July 31.
