A lot of people are throwing around the term “historic” when it comes to the 2018 Midterm Election, so FOX44 researched the numbers.
Over 69,000 people voted in Bell County. This is 20,000 more than the last midterm and 27,000 less than the 2016 Presidential Election.
Over 75,000 voted in McLennan County. This is close to double the people who took part in the last midterm – and only 5,000 shy of the election two years ago.
This trend continued across the state.
Nearly double the number of Texans voted on Tuesday night compared to 2014. This came relatively close to the total of voters in the 2016 Presidential Election.
