Hidalgo County Early Voting Numbers Low
HIDALGO COUNTY — More than 15,000 voters casted their ballots early in Hidalgo county and in fact the county ranks number one in the state for the percentage of Democratic's going to the polls. Even so, the turnout is small when compared to the total number of registered voters in the county as Elections Administrator Yvonne Ramon stated, "That was a good number in comparison, but of course we are at almost 300,000 registered voters. So, if we compare ourselves to ourselves we have a long way to go. We need more people to get out there and vote."
