Readers’ confusion

The writer of this article on Yahoo! Style is obviously confused. Very confused:

voterss-sty

Maybe she didn’t know if there was one voter’s ensembles or many voters’ ensembles, so she mashed them together and created voters’s ensembles. And readers’ confusion.

      Sadly, it’s actually a very common mistake by Yahoo writers and editors. I really think that they have no idea how to form the possessive of a word or how and when to use an apostrophe. Worse, I don’t think they care.
