Recount? Maybe. Minnesotans Wait on Canvassers
Automatic recount time again in Minnesota. At least it looks that way right now in the very close governor's race. Final tally in the race won't be known until the state's canvassing board meets later this month. And if the final count is within a half of a percent of total votes, it's auto recount time. Secretary of state Mark Ritchie says that recount can be waived by the candidate who lags in the vote totals. Taxpayers foot the bill for the automatic vote recount. Currently and unofficially, just about nine thousand votes separate democrat Mark Dayton and Republican Tom Emmer.
