Texas Primary Election 2022: Harris County Election Administrator Will Discuss Uncounted Ballots in Commissioners Court

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) – Today, Harris County commissioners are asking questions about the primary election and the problems with counting thousands of mail-in ballots.

The main problem revolves around around 10,000 mail-in ballots that were not originally added to the unofficial total on election night.

Returning Officer Isabel Longoria is expected to address the Commissioners sometime today.

TIED TOGETHER: 10,000 mail-in ballots were not included in Harris County’s election night count, officials say

Over the weekend it was announced that 6,000 Democrat votes and 4,000 Republican votes were not counted last Tuesday.

These votes will be added to the official count, but both parties want to know how this happened and how to prevent it from happening again in the upcoming run-off elections and during November’s general election.

ABC13 spoke to a Republican district judge who also struggled during the primary. She is also worried about the upcoming elections in the district.

“I have 1,400 voters that normally vote in this place and we couldn’t even get 580 through and we were open until 9 a.m.,” LaDonna Lübeck said. “We sent them where they needed to go to vote somewhere else.”

A review is underway within the county for answers to the missing ballots. We expect to hear directly from Longoria during today’s meeting.
