MN Senate: 11/18 Update
Minnesota's State Canvassing Board meets today to certify the official results of the election. The Franken campaign has made arguments for the Board to consider reexamining various absentee ballots around the state that have been rejected, but the state Attorney General recently issued an opinion that says that issue is more properly considered by the courts. A "tripartisan" group composed of various Minnesota officials and ex-officials made these recommendations for actual physical conduct of the recount that should begin tomorrow.
