Voters in Minnesota are deciding whether to make President Donald Trump the first Republican to carry the state since Richard Nixon in 1972 — or to hold to their usual line and back former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden. Other top races on Tuesday’s ballot include a U.S. Senate race, featuring challenger Republican Jason Lewis against Democratic incumbent Tina Smith. All eight congressional seats and a struggle for control of the Minnesota Legislature are also in play. A record number of Minnesotans voted early. But a court ruling last week has cast doubt on whether late-arriving absentee ballots will count, further raising the possibility that some race outcomes won’t be known for days. Polls across Minnesota are open from 7am to 8pm for in-person voting. Absentee ballots must be dropped off by 3pm this afternoon.
