Dakota County still waiting for election results

Dakota County election results have been significantly slower than usual this year. As of 12:15 a.m. Nov. 9, the county still had no election results posted for any of its 140 precincts.

A query to Dakota County’s elections manager, Andy Lokken, offered little by way of explanation.

“We’re still working through our early voting and will post results soon,” Lokken wrote in an email at 11:59 p.m. Nov. 8.

Statewide, 81 percent of Minnesota precincts had already reported, including Washington County and Goodhue County.

Polls closed in Minnesota at 8 p.m.

The Hastings Star Gazette will continue to monitor election results and will post more information as it becomes available.
