Email News Alerts

Voting has been steady in Becker County for the general election today, and there have been few if any problems with election equipment or polling places.


"It's almost eerily quiet," said Becker County Auditor-Treasurer Ryan Tangen at about 1:15 p.m.

"Things are going pretty well," he said. The county received new voting equipment in 2006, and Tangen is used to going out to polling places to troubleshoot when problems arise.

But today, they never arose.
