KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - We're learning more about an Election Day problem in Kaukauna.

More than 130 voters in the city's Ward 3 were given the wrong ballot. That led to those residents voting in a different Outagamie County Supervisor race.

On Friday, poll supervisors explained that the color of the slips of paper used to count how many voters voted in a specific ward didn't match the color of the ballot. So, poll workers ended up matching the colors of the voting slips.

“I guess we start to color coordinate the poll books, the ballots, and the voter slips,” Kaukauna City Clerk/Treasurer Susan Duda told FOX 11.

According to Outagamie County Clerk Lori O'Bright, she expects the candidates affected by these ballot problems in District 10 and 13 may ask for a recount.
