I'm wondering if anyone has good stats on the increase in turnout for early voting. I've heard there was a big increase and this may make polls that only take "likely GOP voters" worthless. I myself voted Medina and hadn't voted at all before, and I'm sure a lot of independents and Democrats who see White so far ahead may be going Medina. If we could get a good gauge on the increase in GOP early voters or early voters overall I'd appreciate it.

I found you something - an excellent link. Overall, across Texas, the turnout is about twice what it was in 2006. In the Dallas/FtWorth area it may be as much as 230% higher.

In Brazoria County, we're right at twice the 2006 numbers.
