Recount Results

This morning was the recount to confirm last place and second-to-last place in last week's primary election, and thus who would be on the final ballot in November.  Four Maplewood election judges and two observers from the Ramsey County elections department went through all the ballots by hand, sorting them into four piles (those with Elizabeth Sletten votes, those with Rebecca Cave votes, those with both Sletten and Cave votes, and those with neither) and counting the Sletten and Cave votes (the others were ignored).  When all the ballots were recounted, the final tally increased Cave's total by two votes, so she beat Sletten by nine instead of seven and is confirmed to be on the general election ballot.

News blurbs are already up on both the Pioneer Press and Star Tribune websites.
