Ramsey County sent out more than 1,000 ballots listing the wrong GOP candidate

The state Supreme Court must weigh in on a fix before the county can send corrected ballots

More than 1,000 Ramsey County voters were sent absentee ballots with the wrong Republican candidate for the Minnesota House, say county officials, who are seeking immediate help from the state Supreme Court to fix the error.

Those ballots listed Beverly Peterson as the Republican running for the House District 67A seat from St. Paul; however, Peterson died in early August.

Under state law, the GOP was allowed to replace her on the ballot with Scott Hesselgrave in the race against DFLer Liz Lee. Lee beat incumbent Rep. John Thompson in the August primary.
