KBTX has learned nearly 400 Election Day ballots were uncounted in Brazos County after they were inadvertently left in a voting machine in Bryan.

The mishap was discovered Tuesday at the Fellowship Freewill Baptist Church voting location, and county officials immediately notified the Texas Secretary of State's Office.

According to documents obtained by KBTX, "the Brazos County Elections Administrator noticed a discrepancy in the number of ballots cast in comparison to the number of codes issued to voters."

The county is now requesting that the 361st District Court order a count of the ballots on Tuesday, November 13 at 9 a.m., when mail-in ballots are already scheduled to be counted.

The count is not expected to affect the outcome of any of our local races.
