MN Canvassing Board rejects Franken's request to consider rejected absentees in the recount
The Minnesota State Canvassing Board met today and unanimously decided that rejected absentee ballots would not be reviewed during the ongoing administrative recount. Both the Attorney General and the Secretary of State have said in the past that these are to be reviewed in the context of an election contest lawsuit. See the Star Tribune report here. The practice varies by state with some reviewing absentee ballots during recounts and other states doing the same as Minnesota.
