Terrell County- The polls stayed open late at some precincts in Terrell County.

Five precincts were temporarily shut down this morning because of problems with county commission ballots. The problem was that Terrell County Commission ballots were sent to the wrong precincts.

Technicians had to go to precincts to make sure the correct ballots were loaded into the electronic voting machines in the precincts that had to be closed.

As a result, a judge ordered precincts in Dawson, Sasser, Graves and Harod to stay open until nine. A precinct in Bronwood stayed open until eight.
