KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) - Officials in Roane County say they plan to recount every ballot cast in the primary election.

That’s because about more than 1,000 weren’t counted Thursday night. Roane County Election Administrator Charles Holiway told WATE-TV (https://bit.ly/1skRcVu) that there’s about 1,300 votes in question and several local races could be affected.

Holiway said the directive to recount every ballot comes from the state Attorney General’s Office.

Races that could be affected include circuit clerk, circuit judge in the 9th District, county commission and the Harriman City Council.
