It may be too early to call it a record turnout for this June Primary Election in North Dakota, but several constitutional measures on the ballot have people turning-out in droves to vote.
Lines were common today at polling sites around Minot.
Most lines weren't too long, however this morning there was about an hour wait at the southwest voting site at MAYSA Arena.
County Auditor Devra Smestad says they had a problem with of the scanning machines and then a few other hiccups which delayed things a bit with the huge turnout.
(Devra Smestad, Ward County Auditor) "They were trying to put the ballots in either too fast or two at a time and every time you do that it stops the scanner and returns and so it was slowing down the process a little bit. In order to speed that up, we found there was a problem there. We took an extra ballot box and scanner up and got things going."
"Auditor-Treasurer's Office, this is Nicole, how can I help you today?"
Smestad says there was a little bit of confusion by some voters on where to go to vote in Minot today as well.
There are just four polling sites in Minot each in the different quarter-section of the city.
The rural voting sites haven't changed from past elections.
If you were flooded and are displaced Smestad says the address where you consider your permanent residence, even if you're not living there, is the area where you should vote.
However those in FEMA parks east of Minot can vote at Nedrose School
