WEBB COUNTY, Tex. (KGNS) - On Election Day, voters across the country are heading to the polls to cast their ballot for the midterm elections.

In Webb County, some voters here at home are already reporting issues at some voting sites across town.

As early as 7 a.m., a number of viewers called our newsroom regarding issues some voters were experiencing at the poll, especially those living on Highway 359. According to some viewers, some of the candidates were not showing on their ballots.

The Webb County Elections Administrator, Jose Luis Castillo, said the reason was that the administration released the census a little late and the Elections Office had to run with it. Castillo says Webb County did theirs in a timely fashion. “If you notice the county precincts are accurate. We have 78 county precincts. Now in the interim, after we did our redistricting, the city had to do the other political subdivisions. We took a little longer, I believe some contracted them out. In essence, they were given to us in a very short window time frame because we had to input the system, make the changes, and input it and send it to the state. So naturally, there are a few human errors,” said Castillo.

Castillo is telling voters that if they see an issue, speak to an elections judge that is on-site before turning in their ballot.
