UNDATED (AP) — Voters in Minnesota are deciding whether to make President Donald Trump the first Republican to carry the state since Richard Nixon in 1972 — or to hold to their usual line and back former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden. Other top races on Tuesday’s ballot include a U.S. Senate race, featuring former Congressman, Jason Lewis against Democratic incumbent, Tina Smith. All eight congressional seats and a struggle for control of the Minnesota Legislature are also at stake. A record number of Minnesotans voted early. But a court ruling last week has cast doubt on whether late-arriving absentee ballots will count, further raising the possibility that some race outcomes won’t be known for days. Polls across Minnesota are open from 7am to 8pm for in-person voting. Absentee ballots must be dropped off by 3pm this afternoon. In addition to all of the major races across the state, we’ll also be closely watching the election in Monte for the city’s Mayor and a School Technology Referendum.
