FARGO — There are less than three weeks to Election Day, and officials say this election could be busier than past ones. If current numbers are any indication, there should be a lot of absentee voters this time around.
FARGO — For months, a sea of orange along South University Drive pushed Taco Shop toward the red.
FARGO—Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is apologizing after a newspaper campaign ad used the names of more than 100 women, saying all of the women were survivors of sexual assault. Some of the women listed are not survivors of sexual violence, and did not give the campaign permission to use their names. The ad all stems from an open letter criticizing Heitkamp's opponent for Senate, Rep. Kevin Cramer, for his recent comments criticizing the #MeToo movement. She spent much of the day apologizing after retracting the campaign ad.
FARGO—A woman is warning others after a frightening experience in downtown Fargo on Saturday, Oct. 13. She says it all happened along Broadway just after bar close, and that one minute she was walking to her car, and the next, running from danger. For Macy Gourneau, a fun night downtown this weekend, took a terrifying turn. "Very, very traumatizing, scary," Fargo resident Macy Gourneau said. Gourneau was with a friend when she says they passed a group of four or five men in their late 20s. She says the group cat-called her, but she ignored it.
FARGO —New Real IDs have created frustration for some who are turned away while trying to get one. A long wait at a license office can be a frustrating experience. "I remember when I got my license, all I needed was my birth certificate," Customer Jennifer Coleman said. "What do you need now? A state ID, a driver's license, passport, and your social security card?" Coleman said. By October 2020 you'll need Real IDs to board domestic flights in North Dakota and Minnesota. The documents you need to get one make a pretty long list.

Heavy Snowfall before harvest has hamstrung many soybean farmers in central North Dakota. Wesley Knudsen doesn't want to be sweeping snow right now. He'd much rather be sitting in a combine. "This year I'm not sure what it'll take to dry up," said Knudsen. "I have very few soybeans harvested." He still has 2,000 acres to harvest. But here he is, broom in hand, equipment smothered with the white stuff. "In 2009 there was a light dusting in the first week of October, but nothing like this, not this much. Not this heavy and not this wet."
PERLEY, Minn. - It's harvest time in Perley, Minnesota and the Gehring family is ditching classic equipment and harvesting the old-fashioned way. "Every cobb picked by hand," Farmer Colten Gehring said. Picking by hand helps them keep the kernels safe. They say this is important when you're farming popcorn. "It's very interesting and humbling to see people come up to you and say oh you're the popcorn people," Gehring said. What started as wedding favors three years ago grew into a business the Gehrings are proud of.
MOORHEAD — For the first time in years, there will be no polling places on the Minnesota State University campus this Election Day.
