A four-member team from the Kansas secretary of state's office spent a couple of hours in Wichita on Tuesday, looking at problems experienced by the Sedgwick County election office in reporting results from the Nov. 6 general election.
The results on election night did not begin to come out until almost 11:30 p.m., and the full results were not known until 1:30 a.m, frustrating residents and watch parties waiting for local election numbers.
The state's director of elections, Brad Bryant, said it was a reporting problem and not a tabulation problem, which was expected. He said the election office may need additional staffing and more training on the election software and reporting procedures.
Bryant is delivering his findings to Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and Kobach will issue a final report later with some recommendations.
