There was a problem with some of the ballots in the first hour of early voting in Hopkins County. Voters in Precinct 1 reported that Sulphur Springs ISD’s $85.1 million bond election was missing from the ballot. County Clerk Tracy Smith said 19 voting ballots were affected. Nine people reported it immediately, and one came in later. Nine people still have not been contacted by Smith, who promised she would try to get in touch with them, although the Secretary of State’s Office said it was unnecessary. The malfunction resulted from a programming error, and they have corrected the problems.
