TOPEKA — A reporting error narrowed the margin of the Republican race for governor, the governor’s office said.
On Thursday, a reporting error in the vote count from Thomas County was discovered and corrected. The correction narrowed the 191 vote margin to just 91 votes. The vote margin now stands at 0.02 percent.
“The discovery of this error shows the importance of getting this right,” Kendall Marr, Gov. Colyer’s campaign spokesman, said. “This is why you have canvas, this is why you check your math, and this is exactly why Gov. Colyer will ensure that every vote is counted fairly and accurately.”
