A report on the Secretary of State's Website is incorrect, according to information provided to St. Michael Patch.
According to poll results provided by the City of St. Michael to St. Michael Patch, numbers currently reported on the Secretary of State's Website with implications on state and specifically Wright County races are incorrect at this time. Though the state shows 6 of 6 precincts reporting in Wright County's District 4 race, the numbers are misleading, becuase the state shows only 16 people voted on the county race in District 1A in St. Michael. In fact, more than 270 people cast a ballot in the five-person race to advance on to the general election in November. The state's site also shows a 2-0 win for Mary Kiffmeyer over challenger Paul Bolin in the race for Senate District 30 GOP. The city's report shows a 136-72 win for Kiffmeyer. …
