NEW BOSTON, Texas—Bowie County Elections Administrator George Stegall delivered a recent update and statistical review of the county's 32 election precincts to the Commissioners Court at a recent court meeting.
The update and review information includes the number of polling places within each precinct as well as the total number of voters in Bowie County and the voter populations in each precinct.
The 32 precincts collectively contain 42 polling locations. The report shows that of all 32 precincts, Precinct 5c has the largest number of voters—4,517—with Precinct 29 having the fewest at 366. Collectively the total number of active voters in the county is 57,671.
Of the four commissioner road department precincts, Precinct 3 has 14 polling locations while Precinct 4 has 12, followed by Precinct 1 with nine and finally Precinct 2 with seven.
Of the 32 election precincts, 25 of them contain more Republican voters than Democratic voters, while only seven have more Democrats than GOP voters.
Stegall told commissioners that during the last election, the county had 36 election precincts, but some have since been merged into 32.
Following Stegall's presentation, commissioners accepted the report.
