Ector County voters may notice a big mistake on their ballots.

The ballot shows Ray Beaty running for an uncontested ECISD school board seat, but he’s not the one running.

Beaty is stepping away from the school board and Tammy Hawkins is the one who is supposed to be listed as the sole candidate.

The Ector County Elections Office could not explain how exactly they put the wrong name on official ballots, only attributing it to a “human error.”

The elections office says the mistake will not be corrected on paper ballots, but electronic voting machines will have Hawkins’ name listed.
