Emmer Workers Told To Challenge More Says Hennepin Co. Elections Manager

Hennepin County Elections Manager Rachel Smith Talks About Recount

Hennepin County Elections Manager Rachel Smith says she has heard Republican recount leaders urging their workers to challenge more ballots in Minnesota’s Gubernatorial recount. She says the challenges made by Republican Tom Emmer’s campaign have been “a bit unnecessary”. Over the past two days in Hennepin County alone there have been close to 1,000 ballot challenges that were ruled “frivolous”. All but a handful of those frivolous challenges were made by the Emmer campaign. She showed the press some of those challenged ballots which included one with a fully filled in oval for Mark Dayton. The Emmer campaign challenged the ballot questioning the “voter intent”.
