To Keep Galveston County Red, we need to get busy registering voters. Below find statistics of the Voter Turnout in 2018.

These are the people who ended up voting:

  • 12.8% of the people who voted in November were people who had not voted in any of the previous four general or primary elections. In 2014, this group made up 6.2% of the votes cast (2016, it was 18.7%).
