- Neighbouting Brooks County and Jim Hogg County have never voted Republican but were only created – partially from the 1892 boundaries of Starr County – in 1911 and 1913 respectively. The only county outside South Texas to have voted Democratic at every election back to and including 1920 is North Carolina’s Northampton County, which last voted Republican in 1896.
