No voters in a Minneapolis precinct

| No Comments

A computer error resulted in no votes being cast in the Nov. 6 election from Ward 10, Precinct 3B in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune said.
City Clerk Casey Carl said the occurrence was due to the electronic redistricting of the area, therefore the precinct lies underneath the water of Lake Calhoun, United Press International said.
"It's the unintentional result of a programming error made in drawing new ward boundary lines during the redistricting process," Carl said in a email to the Star Tribune.
The Star Tribune noticed the lack of votes in the precinct after the elections. The error was to have been corrected before the elections, but never was, the Star Tribune said.
"So far, no one has been lured to the precinct to cast a vote," United Press International said.
