  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Polls are opening across North Dakota as the state's primary election gets under way.
    There are Republican primary races for U.S. House and Senate seats, and three people are vying for two November ballot spots to run for state school superintendent.
    There also are four ballot measures, including contentious proposals to retire the University of North Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname, abolish property taxes and make it tougher for the state to regulate religious practices.
    Polls began opening at 7 a.m. local time Tuesday and will begin closing at 7 p.m. Early turnout was brisk in Fargo, the state's largest city. Election inspector Mark Miller tells The Forum newspaper that half a dozen people were in line when the polls opened at a local church.
