Harris County sees record number for early midterm voting

Lines wrapped around buildings all across Harris County as voters came out for the first day of early midterm voting. The clerk's office says just over 63,000 people showed up.

Issues on the ballot included the governor's race, the senatorial race, the congressional race, Propositions A and B and a few other local spots.

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart says he believes part of the high turnout is because President Trump was in town.

“It’s all depending on the voters voting early, is the Trump coming to town have an impact on turn out today and maybe tomorrow, who knows what’s going to happen it’s all up to the voters,” says Stanart.
