If anyone ever regurgitates that tired 'my vote doesn't count' line as their excuse for not voting, point to this race.
After counting 933 absentee ballots excluded in error over the weekend, Al Franken's lead grew from 49 votes to 225.
Since there are no more outstanding ballots left to count, the Minnesota state canvassing board, which oversees the ballot process, is scheduled to meet today and formally declare Franken the winner today or tomorrow.
Of course, Norm Coleman is going to file suit asking for a fresh count, but since the new Congressional session starts this week, Franken could be seated as Minnesota's senator on an interim basis until the matter is resolved.
If it holds up, that increases the Dems Senate majority to 59 seats, one short of the magic 60 seat mark.
