Investigation into possible violation of election rules

Posted:
JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Johnson County Attorney is investigating a possible violation of election rules.

In security video obtained by our partners at the Iowa Press-Citizen, County Auditor Tom Slockett is seen giving an intern a tour of the ballot room.

The incident happened Monday, and neither Slockett nor the intern touched anything in the room.

Under Johnson County election rules, only election staff or vendor personnel are allowed access to voting equipment.

The Johnson County Attorney is checking to see if the tour violated any election rules.

Slockett's challenger, Travis Weipert, won the primary election with 62 percent of the vote.
