FARGO – A chilly summer morning turned into a warm and breezy evening as Cass County residents came out to vote in Tuesday’s primary election, during which officials said polling stations experienced few hiccups. The county has roughly 135,000 eligible voters and about 18,300 ballots were cast, including in-person, absentee and early votes, according to County Auditor Mike Montplaisir. The figure was higher than the 17,835 voters seen in 2014, the last primary held in a non-presidential election cycle.
FARGO — A crack of the bat and a laced, hard white ball flies high into the sky. It's heading in the direction of a lone fielder, who is tracking the ball in the air and jogging backwards. Players in the outfield yell "Get it! Get it!'' with a sudden burst of enthusiasm as two players from the batting team run across a 22-yard-long pitch in the middle. The ball hangs at the highest point and falls right into the open hands of the fielder. Cheering ensues and all the players in the outfield rush to congratulate him. Then it's back to positions.
