Campaign representatives for Democrat Al Franken and Republican Sen. Norm Coleman return to Rochester tomorrow to hash over which absentee ballots were improperly rejected. The work begins at 1 p.m. at the Olmsted County Government Center in Conference Room 1. As part of these meetings, campaign representatives and county officials will be working together to try to develop a consensus over which absentee ballots were illegally tossed out. Olmsted County election officials have identified 50 ballots they say were improperly rejected.
Based on this Star Tribune story, odds are this could end up being a contentious gathering. Meanwhile, the haggling has left some voters in limbo wondering whether they're ballot will be counted. That's the case for Rochester's Richard Haefner. I write about that in today's column.
