JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -

Election workers in Johnson County worked through the night, in an effort to tabulate ballots, after a glitch in their system Tuesday night. 

The Johnson County Election Office announced about 6:55 a.m., via Twitter, that the problem was resolved and that the results would be reported once the Kansas Secretary of State's Office resumed ballot collection at 9 a.m.

The progress was slow and steady.

Their priority was not about getting the job done fast but getting the job done right and accurately. 

Officials don't know what caused their system to crash and have been in contact with experts in Omaha to try to figure out what happened.

Meanwhile, workers stayed busy tabulating votes until the job was done. 

“We're committed to be here as long as we can and feel like we're doing a quality work and we are going after that we haven't left and we are committed to getting the election done and getting it done properly,” Johnson County Election Commissioner Ronnie Metsker said. 

He says nothing like this has happened before and that they are handling the situation the best they can. 

The election office also said, via Twitter, that they will continue working and begin scanning and tabulating the remaining paper ballots.
