Provisional ballots will decide the outcome of a Ford County Commission race that was left off the ballots given to some voters in Tuesday's election.
Unofficial returns showed Michael Burkhart holding a three-vote lead over incumbent Commissioner Chris Boys in the Republican primary.
After the error was discovered, the company that provided the ballots was able to correct it and voting continued.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports that it is unclear how the error occurred.
About 30 provisional ballots will be reviewed Monday to determine the outcome of the race.
