43. Why Minnesota's Recount Process is a Model for the Country
With a celebrity candidate and record-setting expenditures the race to represent Minnesota in the US Senate captured the nations attention even before the historically close margin was announced. An automatic, manual recount of the Minnesota U.S. Senate race that began could last until mid-December. As non-partisan, election integrity advocates in Minnesota, we welcome this attention and hope that one of the outcomes will be lessons learned that strengthen our democracy.

One reason for our optimism is that Minnesotas election system minimizes problems and circumstances that have historically reduced voter confidence. The occurrence of such problems and circumstances in other states plagued the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. The people, procedures, and technology comprising Minnesotas election system are among the most respected in the nation. Minnesotas election system has great potential to certify results that accurately reflect the will of the voters and in which voters can have confidence.
