Watonwan County auditor Don Kuhlman expects results of the election to be delayed until late Nov. 6 as a result of all the write in candidates throughout Watonwan County.
He reminds voters that if they choose to write in a candidate, they still have to check the box next to the candidate’s name.
“The tickets are separated into a right and a left box, left is those without the candidate written in and right, those that do,” says Kuhlman. “Of course, if you don’t check the box, we go through and will catch it.”
To save time, Watonwan County will also be getting rid of the local spreadsheet and uploading the latest election results straight to the Secretary of State’s website.
“Going to the Secretary of State’s website is the best way to receive the updated results,” says Kuhlman.
The Secretary of State’s website address is www.sos.state.mn.us.
