The votes are finally counted

...and Republican Judy Soderstrom won by 76 votes. This recount was the last of the state house races to be decided.

Sure, it took almost three weeks to finish, but the world didn't end in that time. There were no riots out in district 8B, no rent-a-crowds throwing bourgeois riots in Kanabec County. Actually counting every vote wasn't that hard to do, and everybody is satisfied with the result. Why can't this happen for all the elections in this country? Why do we have to know by Wednesday morning the results of all races?
