Minnesota Supreme Court to hear case on absentee ballots
The Coleman campaign seeks to stop the counting of any rejected absentee ballots claiming that counties need a consistent statewide set of rules on how to define and count rejected absentee ballots. The campaign contends that there has been inconsistent application of the rules. Two members of the court are on the canvassing board. See the Star Tribune coverage here. It is not clear if the case has been filed yet but no documents are available yet online. EL@M will track the case when the documents become available.
