Results from Minnesota’s First Post-Election Review Confirms Accuracy of State’s Voting Machines PDF  | Print |  Email
By Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota   
November 15, 2006
The first statewide post election review of votes cast in each of Minnesota’s 87 counties is nearly completed and the results should give Minnesota voters renewed confidence in the state’s election process, said Mark Halvorson, director and co-founder of Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota.

The accuracy of Minnesota’s electronic voting machines is being assessed for the first time through a hand count of randomly selected precincts in each county. “Our goal is to help Minnesota set the gold standard for accurate and verifiable elections,” said Halvorson.  “We are impressed thus far by the accuracy of the machines and the professionalism of the county election officials.”

Volunteers around the state took part in the nation’s first statewide observation of a post election review. Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota coordinated this effort which was co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Minnesota.

Helen Palmer, president of the League of Women Voters Minnesota, noted that citizens around the country have expressed concern about programming errors and other incidents of vote count inaccuracies. “We’re pleased to report that Minnesota’s election process has withstood objective review,” said Palmer.
