ABC News projects Donald Trump will win in Texas.
Texas is a big prize on Tuesday. At stake: 38 electoral votes.
Polls in Texas open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. local time. Because a portion of western Texas lies in the Mountain time zone, some polling places close an hour later than the majority of the state.
Texas has cast its electoral votes for the Republican presidential nominee in the past 10 elections, but some Democrats are hopeful this could be the first time since President Jimmy Carter's election in 1976 that they are able to turn the state blue. Recent polling shows President Trump and Joe Biden in a tight contest, with Biden gaining ground on his strength with Latino voters and in formerly conservative suburbs.
The Lonestar State is also home to a competitive Senate race this cycle, between Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democrat MJ Hegar, and a battle over the state's House of Representatives, where nine seats could swing the chamber -- and influence over congressional district realignment -- to the Democrats.
*Counties are colored red or blue when the % expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
