SAN ANTONIO - Early voters were greeted with long lines on Tuesday, the first day of Early Voting in Texas.

While it is likely the long lines are due in part to social distancing measures at all poll sites, the lines were also indicative of the turnout expected for the November 3rd presidential election.

At the University of Texas at San Antonio, a poll worker told voters that there is only one computer to check people in and was encouraging some to come back on Wednesday to vote.

On Monday, Bexar County Elections Administor Jacque Callanen reported that nearly 1.2 million people in Bexar County are registered to vote.
