MN Senate Race: 11/11 Update
There is not much news today on the Minnesota Senate race, as counties completed and certified their counts yesterday. Coleman's lead remains at 204. However, counties are now conducing post-election audits of their vote totals that aim to check the accuracy of the voting equipment, although they are designed so that they will usually not change the result of an election. Also, here is some information identifying where Franken has picked up his extra votes. The actual recount begins next week. Both parties have agreed on some chain of custody rules that they would like to see followed and asked the Secretary of State to issue an order making them enforceable (see more info here and here, q. 37).
