Texas 2020 Elections

Democrats hoped high turnout would usher in a blue wave across Texas. It didn’t.

In Texas, at least 66% of the 17 million registered voters cast ballots in the 2020 general election. That’s 6.6 percentage points higher than total turnout in 2016.

Voters wait in line to vote at the Austin Central Library, prior to polls opening on Election Day 2020. Nov. 3, 2020.
