Election judges worked at a Duluth precinct on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.

Minnesota's top election officials signed off on the results of this year's vote on Tuesday, giving the state's process a clean bill of health even as a group of Republicans filed a last-minute legal challenge.

"Our voting equipment is incredibly accurate and the postelection review in front of you proves that," David Maeda, the state's director of elections, told members of the five-person state canvassing board led by Secretary of State Steve Simon, which met to make official the outcome of the Nov. 3 vote.

Despite unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic, Maeda reported that a random audit of precincts in all 87 counties failed to show a level of irregularities that would have, by law, triggered a full-county recount anywhere.
