MN Sup. Ct. denies Colemanís motion
The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied Coleman’s motion requesting that the Court order all absentee ballots that officials or the campaigns identified as having been wrongly rejected sent to the Secretary of State for final determination of whether to include them in the canvass. The court unanimously concluded that disputes over absentee ballots must be handled in an election contest suit instead of in the automatic recount process. See the order here on our case page. The canvassing board meets today at 2 p.m. CST to announce the results of the state canvass. See prior EL@M coverage of the race here.
