The challenged ballots

There has been a lot made about the disputed ballots in Minnesota's U.S. Senate race. The Secretary of State's office released the first batch of about 1,000 yesterday afternoon. A team of dedicated MPR news folks examined each and every ballot and found that many of the challenges were frivolous.

For the record, both campaigns say they intend to reduce the number of challenged ballots (which is inching closer to 6,000) before the State Canvassing Board starts going through the ballots on December 16th.
