Mid-day today, Republican candidate for Texas governor Greg Abbott tweeted that his name was left off the ballot at a Bexar County voting booth.

"Ballot irregularities omit my name from ballot in Bexar Co. Call Secretary of State if you spot other problems," he tweeted. He also blasted out a link that shows images of the voting booth, with the original shot coming from a Twitter user with the handle @BiasedGirl.

Calls and emails to the Bexar County Elections Department to confirm the photos were not immediately returned, but we'll update you once we hear from them. Election officials told the San Antonio Express-News they believe the image is doctored.
