"The corrected figures gave Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton about a 69,000-vote lead over Republican Tom Emmer in Hennepin County, compared with a 134,000-vote lead under the incorrect figures."

Come on, what are the REAL numbers?

How could people vote for Republican state congress members and then vote for the liberal idiot Dayton?

I agree, what are the real numbers and why do we have the number of voters not matching the number of votes? Do we have to explain it to Hennepin county all over again, you can only count the vote once doesn't matter who it is for you can only count it once. Also, if you see the same person coming through more then once, that is a problem. If you "find" ballots other then where they are secured they cannot be counted.

Ever notice how these "glitches" always seem to favor the Dumocrats? How convenient.

Does it scare anyone that the vote totals could be completely goof up by one person hitting "Add' versus "Replace" in whatever program they are using? How about having a second pair of eyes looking at your results before you publish them. Computers are making people intellectually lazy in so many arenas. With just a tiny amount of diligence, errors like that are easily avoided. The excuse screams of laziness.
