BISMARCK, N.D. — Polls are opening across North Dakota for the midterm election.
Polling sites are open in most counties from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time Tuesday. Lines had formed by opening time in Fargo, the state’s largest city.
The National Weather Service forecast indicates favorable conditions, with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Voters will decide a U.S. House race, several state offices and eight ballot measures, including Measure 1. If it’s approved, North Dakota would amend its state constitution and would define the “inalienable right to life” to be at “any stage of development.”
More than 77,000 North Dakotans have already cast ballots by mail and absentee or at early voting centers.
Secretary of State Al Jaeger says 240,876 people voted in the 2010 midterm election.
