A number of precincts around Ellis County were hit by enough voters in Tuesday’s primary runoff election that ballots ran short, requiring elections officials to use copy ballots to meet demand.

Jane Anderson, Ellis County elections administrator, said voting precincts in Ennis, Ovilla, Maypearl, Midlothian and Red Oak were short on ballots by the evening hours Tuesday, including numbers 102, 103, 104, 105, 107, 109, 110, 112, 120, 121, 122, 134, 135, 143, 144, 145 and 146.

All-tolled, just short of 300 copied ballots had to be hand-counted by elections officials, Anderson said.
