MOORHEAD - Clay County election officials were told today to quit telling voters that leaving the marriage amendment and voter ID measures blank would be counted as "no" votes.


The Clay County auditor's office received complaints from voters who felt the statements could be an attempt to sway voters, said Clay County Auditor Lori Johnson.

"(Election officials) can't try and change how someone votes," Johnson said. "They try to give instruction on proper voting."
