Early voting is underway in Texas, and some of the Lone Star State’s biggest counties shattered voter turnout records on the first day of early voting Monday, despite long lines at some polling places.
Travis County saw the most dramatic increase, as 35,066 voters cast ballots on Monday — more than double the first day of early voting in 2012, when 16,378 Texans voted. The county’s previous record of 24,207 was set on the first day of early voting in 2008. Neighboring Williamson County also broke its previous record for the first day of early voting.
But if you didn’t snap a selfie or a photo of your “I Voted” sticker after doing your civic duty, did you really vote at all? Here are photos of 10 Central Texans who shared their post-vote photos with the hashtag #TexasVotes2016.
Haven’t hit the polls yet? Early voting runs through Nov. 4 and Election Day is Nov. 8.
Voting + Blue Bell = a winning combination.
