Recount Report: Minneapolis Update, December 3rd, 2:58pm

The observer reports that in Minneapolis W3 P1 officials counted 129 write-in ballots. The election officials believe these ballots (which are stored separately in the optical scanner) were initially not labeled correctly and were inadvertently run through the optical scanner a second time on election day. The election officials believe this explains almost all of the 133 unaccounted ballots in the precinct. Officials are looking into the remaining 4 uncounted ballots. The observe reports that the process has been very transparent and smooth.
