Minnesota election decided by one vote may have had 35 of its votes cast in error

8B filing:

There was a ridiculously close election in Minnesota between State Rep. Mary Franson (R) and Bob Cunniff (D). Franson won by one measly little vote.

However, as it turns out, election officials discovered that poll workers mistakenly handed dozens of ballots to residents of a neighboring district. In at least three polling places that shared precincts, there were errors.

Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The state canvassing board will meet at 1 p.m. to set the terms for the 8B recount, which is likely to begin Nov. 28 and continue for several days.

Franson's petition is above.
