State Canvassing Board certifies election results; pair of publicly funded House recounts coming

Featured Image

Confirmation of almost all House election results is complete. However, recounts will occur in two contests.

The State Canvassing Board unanimously certified the 2022 General Election results Tuesday, including state offices, judicial offices and eight U.S. House of Representatives’ races.

As things currently stand in Minnesota, the DFL will have a 70-64 seat advantage in the House and a 34-33 edge in the Senate when the 2023 session begins Jan. 3. However, by law, a couple races separated by less than one-half of 1 percent are eligible for publicly funded recounts if requested by the losing candidate by Dec. 1:

  • 3A: Republican Roger Skraba leads Rep. Rob Ecklund (DFL-International Falls) 10,868-10,853 (49.98%-49.91%) with 22 write-in votes; and
  • 3B: Republican Natalie Zeleznikar leads Rep. Mary Murphy (DFL-Hermantown) 10,812-10,777 (50.01%-49.85%) with 31 write-in votes.
