Proctor race hung up in Coleman-Franken recount

The impending recount of U.S. Senate votes for Sen. Norm Coleman and Al Franken will cause a brief hold-up in an unlikely area -- the Proctor School District.

The impending recount of U.S. Senate votes for Sen. Norm Coleman and Al Franken will cause a brief hold-up in an unlikely area -- the Proctor School District.

Proctor School Board candidate Louise Lind requested a recount on Monday after losing her re-election bid by six votes.

It's uncertain when the recount will take place, said district Finance Director Steve Anderson, because the St. Louis County Auditor's office is keeping all county ballots under lock and key until the statewide recount begins.

The recount will also have to be done by another jurisdiction, Anderson said, because Lind is the school district's clerk, so that responsibility would ordinarily fall to her. That jurisdiction has not yet been decided, Anderson said.

Incumbent Kevin Maki and challengers Ted Peterson and Craig Lahti were elected to fill three school board seats. Lind came in fourth out of six candidates.
