Secretary of State Mark Ritchie named four jurists to serve with him on the State Canvassing Board, which will examine and certify the results of the state's primary election, to be held on Tuesday.
The panel will meet Aug. 21 to take action on the primary results. If recounts are necessary, the board will oversee them.
State law requires that the Secretary of State, two Minnesota Supreme Court justices and two district court judges serve on the board.
In addition to Ritchie, the members are Supreme Court justices Alan Page and Christopher Dietzen and District Court judges Rosanne Nathanson and David Higgs, both from the 2nd Judicial District in Ramsey County.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
