Ballots submitted in three south Minneapolis precincts will be hand counted Wednesday morning due to a printing error, FOX9 reports.
About 6,000 ballots in the districts located in the Lowry Hill East and Whittier neighborhoods could not be scanned because of technical printing errors affecting the margins.
According to the Star Tribune, the printing issue in addition to a large number of absentee ballots delayed reporting results into early Wednesday morning, leaving local candidates unsure of their fate.
KARE 11 says the ballots affected represent only a small percentage of Minneapolis voters. They will be hand counted at the city's elections warehouse at 10 a.m.
The printing error was just one of several hiccups at polling places around the state including tabulating machines not working, ballot mixups and very long lines.
