Counties ordered to check ballots

ST. PAUL - Judges in the Senate election trial want county officials' help.

The court on Thursday ordered 63 counties and some cities to examine roughly 1,500 uncounted absentee ballot envelopes to determine whether voters mistakenly placed voter registration cards in the envelope.

The order was a first step toward possibly adding a large group votes in the Senate election tally, but the court's order did not say any of the ballots would be counted as part of the trial.
