"Election Day voting locations for Democratic and Republican Party voters are not consistent or concentrated the same" explained Stanart.

Both counties, however, remain solidly red: Collin County turned out almost twice as many first-day Republicans than Democrats and the Denton GOP vote outpaced the Democrats by about 1,000.
