Stevens County's recount of the Minnesota gubernatorial election will be done in Madison and in conjunction with two other counties.


The Nov. 29 recount was ordered after DFL candidate Mark Dayton finished about 8,700 votes ahead of GOP candidate Tom Emmer in the Nov. 2 general election.

Stevens, Yellow Medicine and Lac Qui Parle counties will have their ballots counted at the Lac Qui Parle County Annex on Nov. 29.
