Challenged Ballots: You Be the Judge!

You've been dying to be an election judge ever since Florida 2000.

Now you can be!

Minnesota Public Radio has examples of challenged ballots from the recount of the U.S. Senate election between Al Franken (D) and Norm Coleman (R).

You get to play judge and say how you would rule in each case. See how your choices compare with the decisions of others!

Sigh . . .

I used to party, chase girls, and rock and roll. Now, this is how I get my fun.

And I thought the 2004 WA gubernatorial election was bad...

That was an exceptionally close one, no? Didn't the Democrat win in the end? A woman?

Yes, I just looked it up on Wikipedia. They say it was "the closest gubernatorial race in American history."

Christine Gregoire. She won, in the end, by 129 votes. Amazing. After two machine recounts.

How's she been as a governor?

There must be a way to turn this into a drinking game.

The election judges are probably already on it.

It's Minnesota. I'm guessing shots of Jägermeister for each time someone marks a ballot outside the bubble?
