Minnesota TV Stations Sue County Over Access to 2008 Absentee Ballots

On August 10, five television stations in Minnesota filed a lawsuit in state court, against Ramsey County election officials. Those officials refuse to let the TV stations examine last year’s general election absentee ballots. The TV stations want to analyze why several hundred absentee ballots were rejected by the county. The lawsuit is KSTP-TV v Ramsey County, 2nd judicial district, case number not yet assigned.

After the disputed 2000 presidential election, news media were able to examine all the Florida ballots. A consortium of news organizations spent almost a year recounting them all.
