The Davison County auditor says possible errors in Tuesday's election results could alter the outcome of some local races.
Auditor Susan Kiepke told The Daily Republic Wednesday afternoon that it appears that some test data was included in the results.
The newspaper had called to inquire about a 407-vote difference between the total number of ballots in the city's street referendum and mayor's race.
Kiepke is receiving advice from Secretary of State Jason Gant and Davison County State's Attorney Pat Smith on how to proceed. She says a total recount is likely, and her staff is preparing for it.
Davison County had numerous local issues on the ballot Tuesday. In the District 20 Republican primary, incumbent Sen. Mike Vehle defeated Steve Sibson 65 percent to 35 percent.
