The recent Constitutional Amendment election across the state of Texas appears to have gone smoothly, and the state’s new voter ID law did not raise any serious impediments to the voting process or voter turnout.

Yesterday the Lubbock County Board of Commissioners heard from Lubbock County Elections officials, who said the early voting and Election Day voting process happened without any major incidents or problems related to the new law.

With turnout traditionally low for off year elections, county election officials reported that 14,993 ballots were cast in the recent election, with a little over 9,000 voters casting their votes during early voting.

52 provisional ballots were cast, with 63 percent of those being rejected by election office officials.

Early voting for the March 4th primary election begins February 18th.
