    Texas exceeds 15 Million registered voters for 1st time

    Texas exceeds 15M registered voters for 1st time

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas has set a new record for statewide registered voters - exceeding 15 million ahead of Election Day on Nov. 8.

    Secretary of State Carlos Cascos announced Thursday that 15,015,700 Texans had registered ahead of the deadline, which expired two days prior. That's roughly 78 percent of Texas' estimated voting population of 19.3-plus million.


    Early voting begins Oct. 24.


    During 2012's presidential election, Texas had more than 13.6 million registered voters, or about 75 percent of its voting age population. Many Texans can't vote because they are under 18 or aren't U.S. Citizens.


    About 14.2 million Texans were registered for the presidential primaries in March, when the state set a record for Republican primary turnout.


    Despite those increases, though, Texas generally has continued to lag behind national voter turnout rates.

    That's a big increase in voter registration for Texas. I notice they didn't say in the article how many are registered as Democrats, Independents or Republicans.

    Texas does not have registration by political party.

    A voter becomes a Republican by voting in the Republican Primary or Republican Primary Run-Off.

    Primary Process

    Political parties hold a primary election in March of even numbered years. Currently, only two parties hold primaries – the Republican Party and the Democrat Party.

    In Texas, registered voters may vote in either political party’s primary; however, a voter may vote in only one party’s primary in each election cycle.


    If a voter votes in one party’s primary, he may not vote in the other party’s run-off election in that same year. Registered voters who do not vote in the primary election may vote in a run-off election of either party that year.


    Republican Primary voters elect the Republican candidates who will appear on the general election ballot, their precinct chairmen, and their county chairmen. Thus, primary voters have a greater influence on the final outcome of the general election than those who only vote in the general election.


    Those who vote in the Republican primary election (either in person or by mail) can then attend the various Republican Party conventions held that year.
