Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - They're counting ballots again in two Minnesota legislative districts.

One of the automatic recounts is underway in Alexandria, to determine if a narrow lead holds up.

Republican Representative Mary Franson's second term bid came down to an 11-vote edge over Democratic challenger Bob Cunniff.

Recounts are automatic if the difference between candidates is within one-half of 1-percent. Both recounts are due to wrap up by week's end.

The state Canvassing Board reconvenes next Tuesday to review the results and rule on any disputed ballots.
