Dallas County, a voting district of nearly 45,000 constituents, failed to report 5,842 votes meant for last November’s election.
Citing “human error,” Dallas County officials said a misstep in the recording procedures caused the votes to be withheld from the final tabulation.
The nearly 6,000 votes accounted for around 13% of Dallas County’s closing total. Dawn Williams of the Iowa Sec. of State’s office said the oversight “… changed the results, but not who was elected.”

On Feb. 1, the Sec. of State’s office realized the number of votes received didn’t coincide with the number of casted votes. A day later, the secretary’s office released an apology.
“It does not appear that it was willful,” Williams said. “If they were going to willfully do something, they would have made it make a difference. It appears from my knowledge of this situation and my experience that it was a human error.”
KCRG published a full report on the mishandled votes.
