Voter turnout looks good at the Civic Auditorium in Fargo; Wrights lean right

More than 20 voters were at the Fargo Civic Center Auditorium polling place when I stopped by around 3 p.m. today.

“I think it’s pretty good,” election inspector Bob Stein said of the turnout.

While checking in at the Civic, I ran into Katie Wright and her husband Jimmy Shayne. Katie said she was voting today because she wants “a change in Congress; for the most part that’s my reason.”

The 27-year-old nurse voted for North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven for Senate and marked the ovals next to Republicans for the District 21 legislative races as well.

“I went Republican,” she says.

Her husband said he was voting today, “because if I want to complain, I can’t … if I didn’t vote.”
