Big Texas turnout on first day of early voting

DALLAS (AP) - Thousands of Texans are casting their ballots in what could be a record first-day turnout for early voting.

Bexar County reported Monday that more than 8,500 voters had cast ballots before noon, which is already more than the first-day totals for the San Antonio area in 2004.

Heavy turnout was also being seen in other large counties, including Harris and Dallas.

The Texas Secretary of State's office reported no major glitches since polls opened early Monday. Spokesman Randall Dillard said the office was caught up on voter registrations as of Sunday morning.

A record 13.5 million Texans are registered to vote for the Nov. 4 election.
