MN Board Resolves 6,688 Challenges
The Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office posted a draft quality spreadsheet containing a proposed resolution for all 6,688 challenges. I’ve tabulated the results into a more readable format below:
Candidate Challenges ->Coleman ->Franken ->Other Coleman (R) 3,404 32 3,125 247 Franken (D) 3,296 2,926 71 299 Both 12 3 5 4 Total 6,688 2,955 3,191 478 Challenge Gain: Franken +236 Margin (Pre-Challenges): Coleman +188 Challenge Draft Recount Margin: Franken +48
The State Canvassing Board will meet tomorrow morning, at 9 AM CT, to finalize the allotment of all challenges. For now however, based upon this initial draft, Franken has taken a 48 vote lead. The only ballots left to count or perhaps uncount, are the wrongfully rejected absentee ballots and a few ballots that were possibly double counted. The MN Supreme Court will meet tomorrow at 2 PM CT to tackle the issue of the duplicate ballots.
The State Canvassing Board’s discussion will be streamed live via TheUpTake.org starting at 9 AM CT.
