‘My vote doesn’t matter’ (Bemidji edition)

Seven people who wrote in candidates swung an election for state representative in Bemidji, Minn.

John Persell, a DFLer, won re-election by four votes in a rematch of a 2016 race in which GOP Rep. Matt Bliss beat Persell.

If only we could see the names of the write-in candidates.

It’s worth noting, by the way, that the famous “Lizard Person” write-in vote in the Norm Coleman-Al Franken Senate election in 2008 came from Bemidji.
