Sarpy County Recount

The recount is over in Sarpy County and 3,000 phantom votes were apparently in the mix on Election Day.

We reported earlier about a computer problem that doubled votes in half the county's precincts. That miscue accounted for 3,000 make-believe votes.

According to election officials, it did not make a difference as to who won and lost.

But in one Papillion City Council race, the difference between winning and losing went from 127 votes to 41.
