A mistake posted on the Johnson County Auditor’s Office webpage for approximately 30 minutes Wednesday morning led to confusion about the upcoming elections.

John Deeth, an account clerk in the Auditor’s Office, was working on template for posting election results this November using the 2011 results. A mistake in the saving of the template led to the 2011 results being posted and titled as 2013 election results.

Deeth said he noticed the mistake after about half an hour and corrected it. He affirmed that no 2013 ballots have yet been opened or counted and what as accidentally posted Wednesday morning was not a prediction of results.
