Can't wait to see Angry Al's reaction. Will he now want to count more ballots??

Finally, some reasonableness in this entire fiasco! I am hopeful that Coleman will emerge the winner. But, should Franken's lead increase with the inclusion of these ballots it will still have been the correct thing to do.

I don't think so, I think it means that there were already certain ballots presented before Jan 22, and the court has ruled that only those can be considered (probably to prevent the Coleman camp from "presenting" a huge pile of ballots in response to the ruling).

Has anyone heard what/when/if this three judge panel is going to rule on having more votes in precincts than there are registered voters? There appears to have been some double-counting in these areas that need to be addressed.
