Runoff maps reveal low Texas voter turnout

May 29, 2014

The primary runoffs are history in the Lone Star State, and maps from the Texas Tribune reveal voter turnout was pretty low. 

For example, in the race for lieutenant governor only 3.5 percent of registered Texas voters earned State Sen. Dan Patrick the Republican nomination.

David Alameel won the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate with 1 percent of voters.

The combined statewide turnout was 951,461.  That’s lower than the March 4 primary when 1.8 million voted.

Texas has 13.6 million registered voters.
