The original canvassing board's report credited Henry B. Rutledge with a margin of 123 votes. Mr. Rutledge presented an election certificate and was sworn in as a legislator. Meanwhile, Mr. Youngdahl contested the election and requested a recount. Soon afterward, House members learned that the district court of Minneapolis had ruled that Emil S. Youngdahl defeated Mr. Rutledge by 28 votes. Mr. Youngdahl made a formal demand for the seat and presented his certificate of election. A special committee was established to investigate. The House did not declare the seat vacant but passed a motion that until the contest is settled Mr. Rutledge was not permitted to participate. Emil Youngdahl was finally seated on January 21, 1927.
