The Australian Electoral Commission has confirmed an error of sorts has occured in the seat of Gilmore.

A transposition error was discovered today in the Gerringong booth of the federal electorate of Gilmore.

"It's not an error in counting" an AEC spokesperson told East Coast Radio, "a figure was input into the system for one candidate when it should have been put in for another."

The AEC has agreed to a recount and postal votes will continue being counted today.
