I was an election judge in Minnesota. We were very meticulous with counting our votes. When we fed our votes through the machine, the machine tally counted a write in vote for every single judge. Of course, we went through each ballot and made sure each vote was counted. There were no write ins for those offices.
Of course, we pointed this out to our County Auditor. Of course, they recounted our recounts. Of course, they had to recount the recounts later when the Coleman/Franken race was so close.
I counted about seventy votes through a machine. Somehow the machine couldn't even count those seventy votes correctly.
I'm not minding the recount. I already knew the machines were unpredictable and full of errors.
It's just a shame that we had to pay for them.
