Election ’02 Flash Dems Sue


As Byron spells out today, the DFL has already filed suit in Minnesota challenging the absentee ballots. The claim, best as I can make it out by the press accounts, is that Minnesota law permits the replacement of spoiled ballots. Because the absentee ballots have in ineligible candidate on them (dead men can’t be elected), they are “spoiled.” Therefore, the Secretary of State is delinquent in not informing voters of their ability to seek replacement ballots.
