Ballot hand count wraps up in Minneapolis

Hand counting of ballots from three precincts in Minneapolis is now complete, and the City’s complete election results have been tallied and submitted to the county and state. Citywide election results are available on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website.

Minneapolis reported election results from 97 percent of the city’s precincts (114 of 117 precincts) on election night as usual. However, some of the ballots used in the remaining threeprecincts (10-1, 10-2, and 10-8) had technical printing errors on the margins of the ballots that caused them to be un-scannable by the standard ballot counters. These printing errors did not affect the ballot content or any races or issues on the ballot.

Following state rules and guidelines for scenarios like this, about 5,500 ballots were hand counted under the supervision of City and County staff. For elections officials and staff, their top priority was to get an accurate count of all ballots cast.

Minneapolis would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s election. More than 200,000 voters cast ballots in Minneapolis, with the help of more than 2,200 election judges and volunteers at the polls who all played a part in ensuring folks had an opportunity to share their voice and participate on Election Day.

After every election, the City reviews how Election Day went and whether improvements need to be made to the process. The City would like to hear from voters about what went well at the polling place, and what needs to be improved for the future. To share your feedback on voting in Minneapolis, call 311 (or 612-673-3000 from outside the city) or email Minneapolis311@minneapolismn.gov.
