26,232 – That is how many El Pasoans voted in early voting. How many of us are registered? 400,504. That means that 6.5% of registered voters have voted. That is an appalling turn out and, unless there is a HUGE rush to the polls on Tuesday, El Paso continues the tradition of having a small minority of people making decisions for the large majority. Way to go, El Paso.
