Coleman seeks to apply Feb. 13 order to all 290,000+ absentee ballots
Coleman now seeks to have the contest court's Feb. 13 order partially defining what constitutes an illegally cast ballot applied to all 290,000+ absentee ballots cast in the 2008 election. See the memo supporting the motion here. The MinnPost.com story is here and the Pioneer Press story is here. Other Coleman v. Franken documents can be found here. In the memo, Coleman does not propose a specific method for removing any illegal votes. It instead focuses on the right of and need for the court to determine which votes were legally cast and to count only those.
