1 in 6 turned away because Tuesday was the first general November election since precinct boundaries were changed based on population counts from the last U.S. census

Provisional ballots counted only after ballot-by-ballot review

St Louis (heavily black/Democratic) had a shortage of punch cards

Despite press reports, Missouri will still be counting ballots for days.


Wellstone absentee ballots not counted; those for Coleman are counted

People still in line at 8:00 PM weren't allowed to vote, contrary to state law. Undoubtedly the lines were longest in the metro (Democratic) areas

Voters went to wrong precincts because of redistricting; many voters used faulty, uncountable ballots which were then hand-transcribed election judges; some ballots contained both Wellstone and Mondale

Despite press reports, Minnesota will still be counting ballots for days
