TODAY'S THOUGHT

The challenge for believers is to understand when our technology habits are leading us into greater anxiety, fear, anger, and pride and be willing to course correct as necessary....to harness these tools rather than allow them to master us.

North Dakota's Secretary of State's Office says voting is going relatively smoothly....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Secretary of State's Office says voting is going relatively smoothly, though a professor helping monitor voting in Indian Country says some people are having problems producing the required documents to vote.
 
     State Elections Director John Arnold says he hasn't heard of any widespread problems at reservation polling sites. But Professor Carla Fredericks with the University of Colorado's American Indian Law Clinic says dozens and perhaps hundreds of American Indians are having issues with the state's recently tightened voter identification laws. Voters need a provable street address, and many people on reservations don't know theirs and don't have IDs that list it. Tribes and nonprofits worked before the election to provide free qualifying ID to thousands of members, but Fredericks says it's still a problem for some.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakotans who are turning out to vote have a lot on their minds, especially the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp and Republican challenger Kevin Cramer.
 
     Forty-three-year-old Bismarck banker Heidi Wahl-McDonald says she favors Heitkamp because of what she's done to help farmers and businesses, and because Heitkamp doesn't always vote along party lines.
 
     Eighteen-year-old Bismarck retail store worker Connor Gref says he researched the candidates' claims about one another, and found Cramer to be more truthful and credible.
 
     The outcome of the race could be key to control of the Senate, but it's not the only thing drawing voters. Other big issues being decided are whether to make recreational marijuana legal, whether to explicitly bar non-citizens from voting, and whether to create an ethics commission and restrict lobbying.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A lot of North Dakotans still vote on Election Day, but an increasing number are voting early. The Secretary of State's Office says 150,894 people cast ballots in early voting at poll sites or through absentee and vote-by-mail ballots. The total surpassed those from 2012 and 2016 - both presidential election years in which voter turnout is traditionally higher than in midterm elections like the one this year. In 2016, the number was 134,805. In 2012, it was 136,685.
    
    Polling sites are open until 7 pm today and if you haven't already voted we encourage you to do so today. Voting information can be found at www.khrt.com.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says cybersecurity officials are hoping for the best in the midterm election but preparing to react to the worst. Nielsen says that the election will be the most secure in the modern era. She was speaking today at a command center where state and local officials are working with federal agents to share information on possible interference from foreign or domestic agents.
 
     States run elections, but Homeland Security is the federal department tasked with both cybersecurity and protecting the country's election infrastructure.
 
     Voters were managing long lines and malfunctioning machines in some areas, but those problems weren't because of any foreign interference. Nielsen says no voting machines have been compromised, but there has been a misinformation effort by foreign groups eager to sow discord.

     JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his ex-wife in Jamestown last spring. Authorities say 25-year-old Nicole Gututala-Hoff was found shot to death in a vehicle in the parking lot of an apartment building on May 12. Twenty-seven-year-old Kevin Hoff turned himself in a short time later. KQDJ radio reports Hoff could face up to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty to murder today. Sentencing wasn't immediately scheduled.

     MEDINA, N.D. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies in southeastern North Dakota came to the aid of a duck hunter from Pennsylvania whose canoe had capsized in a slough south of Medina. A group of hunters called Stutsman County authorities late Monday morning. Three deputies wearing flotation suits swam out about 100 yards and rescued the 30-year-old man. He had been in the water hanging onto the overturned canoe for about half an hour. He and one of the deputies were examined at the Jamestown hospital. Neither was seriously hurt. The man was not immediately identified.
