Franken Will Get Names of Absentee Voters
A Ramsey County (St. Paul) judge has ordered the county to produce to US Senate candidate Al Franken a list of the names and addresses of absentee voters whose ballots the county has rejected. The Franken campaign has indicated in the past that it may use this information to approach voters and see whether they can get their ballots counted. The Franken campaign intends to use the voters' cooperation as a means to persuade the State Canvassing Board to include rejected absentee ballots as part of the recount. The Coleman campaign, which was not a party to the proceedings, stated that it will not approach voters in this way. More info here.
