BREWSTER COUNTY - A recount is under way in Brewster County for the 83rd District Attorney race.

Where incumbent Frank Brown and challenger Jesse Gonzales are still waiting to find out who will take the election.

On Friday, all the paper ballots inside three missing ballot boxes were counted.

The boxes turned up inside the elections vault early last month, and sent the election results into a tailspin.

Gonzales filed a lawsuit against Brewster County Elections Administrator Jerri Jones and Democratic Party Chairman Dale Christophersen.

The results of the recount will be sent to the State's Democratic Party where a winner will be named.
