Glitch Causes Delays in Washoe County Voting Results

Posted: Updated:
The Washoe County Registrar of Voters says a computer problem that held up 10,225 votes has been fixed and final race results have been published.


The office worked with a Dominion Voting, the company that supports the voting infrastructure for several hours to resolve the issue. The problem was solved shortly after 2 a.m, Wednesday. 

"Our I.T. brain that we rely on so much, Brian, and our software vendor, being on the phone, were able to retrieve that information," said Washoe County Registrar of Voters, Luanne Cutler. "All of the numbers matched." 


The registrar tells Channel 2 News that 10,225 absentee ballots were fed into a computer at their office, but for some reason, that computer did not release those results to the main computer to be added to the final numbers. The votes make up about 10% of the vote in Washoe County. 


The county is looking into what caused the glitch and how it can be prevented in the future. 


Cutler says the votes were never in any danger of being lost because the county backs up each ballot to a separate system for memory.
