More San Antonians early voted in the 2020 general election than the entire 2016 election — mail-in, early vote and Election Day included. The state also had more young people vote than any other state.

There were important races up and down the ballot, from reelecting representatives to casting a vote for president. On top of that, there were several special elections and propositions on Bexar County's ballots, too.

What happened Tuesday night? What races were won? What is the state of the nation? What will these results mean for future legislation?
