Our Votes Do Count

It's all coming up Franken! Which is very good. Franken has consistanly demanded that every vote be counted. Seems almost a non-brainer that if you followed all the rules in voting and then an error occured by an election clerk...your vote should be counted during the recount. This is great news for all voters. Our votes do count.

From the Franken campaign:

"The state canvassing board has soundly rejected the Coleman campaign's attempt to disenfranchise 133 voters in Minneapolis whose ballots were lost during the recount, unanimously deciding to count those votes. In addition, they urged Minnesota's 87 counties to identify, open, and count absentee ballots that were wrongly rejected.

This is a huge win for us, because our position has always been the simple principle that every lawful vote should be counted. But there are still a lot of steps left ahead in this process, and the Coleman campaign is likely to bring a whole lot of political and legal muscle to re-double their efforts to stop the count."
