Challenged Ballots This is pretty interesting. Minnesota Public Radio has posted pictures of a handful of challenged ballots in the Senate race. The recount has started (Coleman's lead is down to 168 with about 19%143 with about 30% of the votes re-counted), but 200 500 or so ballots have been challenged so far - that is, not re-counted yet but sent on to a panel of judges to determine. Follow the link to have a look at the kind of thing they will be considering. Some are pretty simple, some maybe not so much.
