The observer last week reported missing ballots in Lakeville precinct 10 and Inver Grove Heights precinct 04. We weren't able to get a full explanation until today when CEIMN Director Mark Halvorson spoke to Kevin Boyle from Dakota County Elections Department. Kevin reported that in Lakeville precinct 10 there were duplicate ballots that were counted twice. However the original ballots cannot be found. Kevin reported that in Inver Grove Heights precinct 04 they don't have an explanation for why ballots are missing for both candidates lost a total of 20 ballots.
