Canvassing Board Gives Two Key Rulings to Franken


After their Friday meeting the Minnesota board unanimously recommends that all counties include the absentee ballots deemed “unfairly rejected” on Election Day.

Also decides to include the 133 missing ballots from a Minneapolis precinct that voted overwhelmingly for Franken.

Rulings could overturn Coleman’s razor-thin lead. Next week the Canvassing Board will pore over 4,000 ballots that both camps have disputed.

Plus: Coleman’s legal team says board’s actions are “confusing,” is filing petition asking the state Supreme Court to create a uniform set of standards for “rejected” absentee ballots. More details on the media call here.
