HOUSTON -- Voting at one Fort Bend County poll was delayed 45 minutes thanks to a mix-up with a voting machine.
Fort Bend is one of three counties where voters will decide a heated race to replace former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
An election judge at Oak Lake Baptist Church says workers at the site discovered the wrong electronic voting machine that runs all the booths. Gwen Ross, the election judge, says 64 people voted on the incorrect machine before the mistake was discovered. Ross said the votes from those individuals would still count.
She says about 20 people were in line to vote when the problem was discovered. She says one person left promising to return.
