    I just have a hard time with the idea of Al Franken being a US Senator. But this is coming from the same state who voted Jessie Ventura in. Minnesota is so crazy.

    I think it`s funny how biased the poll results are (about these ballots, not the ballots themselveS). On Ballot 1 of Day 2, where a choice for Coleman and a write-in are both present, everyone says reject the ballot. However, on ballot 5 of day 1, where you have the exact same situation only with Franken involved, everyone voted to let the vote count.

    lol at the one at the end, the voter obviously crossed out Al but Al`s people argue that he was underlining it.

    I voted that way and I have no idea who Franken or Coleman are. The first had an actual candidate in the write in box, the second had "Lizard people". Unless you seriously think the voter wanted to vote for "Lizard People" then it was likely a (stupid) joke

    People are rubbish at filling in ballots. We had the same craziness over the Scottish ones. Why can`t people read instructions?

    God, it looks like candidates will argue anything if it gets them one extra vote... cos we know that it makes all the difference. They argue that a vote should count because there is a dot in a box... they argue that they shouldn`t allow a vote because of a thumb print... they argue that a line is underlining a choice when it is obviously crossing it out... who do they actually think they are convincing?

    It would be much easier if the scanners just accepted votes which follow the rules and reject ones that don`t, and that be the end of it. I mean, when I took my GCSE`s and they gave us these sort of tests, they didn`t argue over whether someone MEANT to put another answer - they just marked them wrong and failed the idots who didn`t read the instructions.

    You know these types of situations, that waste so much money and no matter who wins present a picture of corruption, could all easily be avoided. If your going to make a law that states if someone signs their ballot(which has to be the most assinine law I have heard of) then why not make a law that states, "IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE ON YOUR BALLOT, ASK FOR A NEW ONE!!! WE`LL DESTROY YOUR OLD ONE!!! BECAUSE IF YOUR BALLOT IS ILLEGIBLE THEN WE ARE GOING TO THROW IT OUT AS WELL!!!!" See how easy that it is.

    Actually Tilden won both the electoral and popular votes, but not by the needed majority so it went to a House committee composed of 7 repulicans and six democrats who voted among themselves. And unsuprisingly, Tilden (Democrat) lost by one vote.

    VV Ah. My mistake (and I used to know that, too!). I really should think before I type.

    But what the drat is up with the pooty handwriting and total lack of hand-eye coordination in Minnesota?

    But it was 7/7 and the "neutral" justice was a republican, so 8-7 (that`s the second time today U.S. History has come in handy - weird).

    They don`t have thumbs, therefore ballots are unnecessary. :)
