In keeping with his little tradition, Mitch Berg voted for his cat as a write in opponent to one of the judges running unopposed in Ramsey County:
Touching, really. But not too smart.
You see, Minn. Stat. sec. 204C.22, subd. 13 provides as follows:
Identifying ballot. If a ballot is marked by distinguishing characteristics in a manner making it evident that the voter intended to identify the ballot, the entire ballot is defective.
So, Mitch: 1) voted for a cat (not even a person, much less a resident of Ramsey County), 2) writes about in his blog, and 3) admits he did it to identify his ballot.
Democratic recount watchers in Mitch’s precinct, you know what to do.
