The rate of registered voters who have submitted their ballot jumped to 34 percent as of Tuesday at 2 p.m.

Burnet County Elections officials had received 10,056 votes as of Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 2 p.m. The number totals roughly 34 percent of registered voters.

“At this point I don't think I've ever seen a higher percentage,” said Burnet County Elections Administrator Doug Ferguson. “We're breaking the daily records every single day.

“We have 8,527 that voted in person,” Ferguson said, “and 1,529 absentee (mail-in) ballots.”

Ferguson said the turnout has been far beyond previous presidential elections.

“Every day we've had more voters than that day ever before in history,” he said. “It's been substantially larger every single day.”
