[KB] No, our paper ballots -- all 2.8+ million of them -- were
recounted by hand at 120 sites around Minnesota.
I was thinking of a smaller election, say a mayoral election in
Minneapolis (which we'll have in November). If there's a recount, the
Election folks will need to have all the ballots, not just precinct
totals, at election HQ. And they will because for every election, after
we transmit the precinct totals downtown, some of us election judges
deliver the paper ballots to two collection sites. Later, all of them
end up at one site.
