Glitch Slows Election Result

KSAL Staff - November 5, 2014 12:54 am

Elections Director Bryan Caskey said Monday that the office has re-examined a state law that makes it a felony to disclose a ballot's contents and concluded it applies to election officials but not voters themselves.

It took a little longer than expected to count the votes, but after a technical glitch, unofficial final results in the Saline County election were gathered late Tuesday night. A problem with the election results manager program caused about a 3.5 hour delay.

Here are the results from Saline County races of interest:
