Two statewide groups are at odds over more than just a ballot issue.

A group opposing a proposed conservation amendment is accusing its supporters of gathering signatures illegally outside of polling sites Tuesday.

They also cannot approach people inside that 100-foot zone for the purpose of gathering signatures.

Allen Geiser, a

His table at Horizon Middle School in Bismarck is about 150 feet away from the doors.

 A spokesperson for the North Dakotan's for Common Sense Conservation Coalition, the group opposed to the amendment, says they will file formal complaints at a later date.

Amendment supporters need nearly 27-thousand signatures to get it on the November ballot.
