Minnesota starts feeding absentee ballots into tabulators!

https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/10/21/see-how-absentee-ballots-now-being-counted-in-minnesota/

“The ballots are scanned. the machine reads them and stores the information. Then, at 8 p.m. on election night, we hit tabulate. And that’s when we get all the results,” deputy auditor Heather Bestler said.

Not every state has this opportunity to count ballots early. So when you hear Secretary of State Steve Simon say Minnesota’s in a relatively good position to turn results quickly, this is what illustrates that.

The counting room is open every weekday from now through Nov. 10, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

2. We have a Democratic Secretary of State to oversee the process

and before the election is certified random recounts will be done. Most with the tabulators and a smaller number by hand.

9. What about Jesse Ventura?

One of Ross Perot's crazy minions. Today, he'd be a Q-anon knuckle dragger with Michele Bachmann crazy eyes.

10. Ventura ran for governor.

The poster I replied to was referring to Minnesota's votes in presidential races.

7. Having worked in Arden Hills for years back when MN was all-in Democratic

It is sobering to see so much of rural MN go into Trumpism. But all that Limbaugh, FOX and Con artists spilling millions of bucks to destroy the state (even worse in my WI) has worked on those unable to know better.

8. Good to know. Dropped our ballots today at City Hall

The person who accepted the ballots immediately went to the computer, entered our IDs and that was it - we were counted.

Was amazed that the tent stood there throughout yesterday snow.

Funny, I was saying that we would vote late October, adding "hope there is no blizzard.."
