A Good Day For Franken

The Minnesota state Canvassing Board made two rulings today, both of which provide a boost to Al Franken, and both of which will be subject to further litigation. The major victory for Franken was the Board’s ruling that improperly rejected absentee ballots should be counted. There could be 1,600 such ballots statewide, according to estimates, and Franken had an advantage in absentee voting. So, if they do end up getting counted after legal maneuvers by Norm Coleman, there’s a good chance that it would eat into Coleman’s current 192-vote lead. Additionally, the Board ruled that 133 “mystery” ballots that could not be found in one Minneapolis precinct should be counted, as they originally were on election day. Franken won those by a net of 46 votes, and the Coleman campaign has questioned whether they were missing in the first place. The other looming issue is over the thousands of ballots that have been challenged during the recount. Both campaigns have been cutting back on the number of challenges before the Board is set to begin reviewing them next week.
