Texas' 2020 early voting surpasses total turnout in 2016 election

(CNN)More than 9 million people have voted early in the key state of Texas, surpassing the state's total turnout from the 2016 general election, with one more day of in-person early voting remaining Friday ahead of Election Day.

Texans cast 8.96 million ballots in the 2016 presidential election, according to the Texas secretary of state's website.

This election cycle, there are signs of an energized electorate as pre-Election Day voting, either by mail or in-person, has skyrocketed amid the coronavirus pandemic and states are reporting record-breaking turnout.

The high turnout this election so far accounts for more than half -- 53% -- of registered voters in the Lone Star State. The number of total registered voters has grown 12% since 2016 -- almost 1.9 million people.
