The Minnesota Supreme Court has issued an order that has set a time for a hearing related to wrongly rejected absentee ballots. The court, however, did not stop local elections officials from sorting and counting any wrongly rejected absentee ballots. The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 1:00PM. Republican Norm Coleman’s campaign asked the court to stop the counting until the court came up with a uniform set of rules on determining wrongly rejected absentees.
