MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The hand counting of ballots from three Minneapolis precincts has wrapped up after printing errors caused some ballots to be un-scannable.
According to Minneapolis city officials, precincts 10-1, 10-2 and 10-8 had ballots with errors on their margins. The printing errors didn’t affect the content of the ballots.
Ninety-seven percent of the city’s precincts reported results on election night. More than 200,000 citizens voted in Minneapolis, with the assistance of more than 2,200 election judges and volunteers at polling stations.
Approximately 5,500 ballots were hand counted under the supervision of city and county staff, following state rules and guidelines for this kind of scenario.
Citywide election results are available on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website.
