Texas Primary 2022: 10,000 absentee ballots were not included in Harris County’s election night count, officials say

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — About 10,000 mail-in ballots were not included in the original tally of Harris County election night, according to Election Administrator Isabel Longoria’s office.

Days after the due date, the Bureau of Elections Administration said the uncounted ballots contained 6,000 Democratic and 4,000 Republican ballots.

According to a statement from Longoria’s office, the oversight occurred between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Saturday “when the political parties that make up the Central County Committee were checking the ballots.”

The statement added that while the votes were scanned into the table computer, they were not transferred and counted as part of the unofficial final score.

“These votes will be added to the final count when the Central County Committee next meets on Tuesday,” the statement said.

The Office of the Elections Administrator said it was coordinating with the Office of the Secretary of State to investigate missteps that may have taken place in the process.
