LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches and Angelina Counties saw record numbers at the polls on the first day of early voting for the 2016 General Election.

Lines were long long all day at the county courthouse annexes in Lufkin and Nacogdoches. In Lufkin the line continuously went outside of the building. In Nacogdoches the elections office seemed to have their own little army of workers making sure the line continued to move.

In Lufkin over 1,400 people made their voice heard.

"The voters didn't let us down," Angelina County Election Administrator Connie Brown said. "The first day of early voting is always just an unbelievable. Everybody has been waiting and waiting. They want to get in and vote."

In 2008, Nacogdoches officials saw 1,382 voters go through the polls. This time over 1,450 voters came out to make their choice.

"People camping out almost like it was a rock concert but a lot of them came in and we've got a lot of people checking in voters," Nacogdoches County Election Administrator Todd Stallings said.
