ND voters enjoy mild weather on Election Day

BISMARCK — Voters heading to the polls in North Dakota aren't being hampered by any bad weather.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for high temperatures Tuesday from the 30s in the northeast to around 50 in the southwest, with no rain or snow.

Polling sites began opening at 7 a.m. Voters are deciding a high-profile U.S. Senate race between Republican Rick Berg and Democrat Heidi Heitkamp, along with races for the U.S. House, governor, state Legislature and a number of statewide offices. They're also deciding five ballot measures, and casting their votes for president.

About 75 people lined up outside the Bismarck Civic Center early Tuesday. Twenty-six-year-old salesman Kurt Triplett was among them. He says worries about the economy brought him out to vote.
