BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -- The Butler County Sheriffs are investigating on how a computer glitch caused delayed election results.

The Butler County Board of Elections held a press conference on Thursday after their web site servers crashed several times throughout the evening.

The Board of Elections has asked the Sheriff's Office to conduct and investigation because they believe that a possibility of the crash could have been a hacker or a problem with the web site itself.

Officials say that at no time were the results or tabulations of the election compromised.
