Minn. Justices Deny GOP Effort to Change Gov Tally

Monday, 22 Nov 2010 06:28 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied a push by Republican Tom Emmer to force a pre-recount comparison of signed polling place rosters and vote tallies in the governor's race

The decision came less than two hours after the high court heard arguments in the case Monday.

The ruling closes one avenue for Emmer as he seeks to overcome an 8,770 vote deficit to Democrat Mark Dayton. The race is headed for an automatic recount.

At issue was whether election administrators neglected to follow the law matching the number of voters and votes in each precinct.
