AMARILLO -- Randall County voter turnout is up.

That is according to Randall County Commissioners.

They went over voting records with the Secretary Of State, today.

Commissioners voted to continue to use their main open voting center.

Ernie Houdashell says, “This morning both the Republican and Democrat party encouraged us to go permanently to the open voting, and the Commissioner’s Court, that's what we voted to do this morning."

Officials say they have had a successful turnout since starting an open voting center, last year.
