Over the next 24 to 48 hours, the Democrats in Georgia will be discovering thousands of “uncounted” votes. They’ll be “finding” them in poll workers’ car trunks, poll sites’ storage closets, or “recounts” of rejected absentee ballots, as happened in Minnesota where Al Franken eventually emerged the winner in the Senate contest despite incumbent Norm Coleman having won the election night balloting count.* DLH

“Democracy only works when we work for it, when we fight for it, when we demand it, and apparently today when we stand in line for hours to meet it at the ballot box,” Abrams said in remarks to supporters at nearly 2 a.m. Wednesday. “I am here today to tell you there are votes remaining to be counted. Voices are waiting to be heard.”
*THE MINNESOTA SUPREME Court unanimously ruled in favor of Democrat Al Franken today, putting an end to a drawn-out U.S. Senate race.
The 5-to-0 decision means that Franken, a former Saturday Night Live star, will become the 60th U.S. senator to caucus with the Democrats.
The court upheld a decision by a three-judge panel in April that found that Franken defeated his opponent, Republican Norm Coleman, in the race by 312 votes after officials recounted previously rejected absentee ballots in the November election.
