Collin County's 2018 midterm elections tracked more like a Presidential election, with the highest turnout ever in this corner of North Texas – and an early voter turnout rate that was the highest in Texas.
So our Information Technology staff pulled up some numbers through the early voting period and Election Day, as well as our activity on the county's elections applications that helped voters find the polls.
What's posted below is overall information. If you want to see how each precinct voted for county, state and Congressional races, our GIS/Rural Addressing mapping folks have compiled a precinct-by-precinct tally for 22 contests, plus straight-party votes cast and overall turnout.

"If someone asked me to describe this historic election and the records that it shattered I would say it would be faster to describe the areas that didn't shatter a record," said
Bruce Sherbet, county
Elections Administrator. "This election tracked a presidential election in every major area of elections administration: voter registration, absentee ballot by mail, early voting and election day.
"In my 30-plus years as an elections administrator, I have never seen a midterm election that comes close to matching this one."
