A canvassing board will have to decide whether to identify the vote count for candidates receiving write-ins in Minot's mayoral election.....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A canvassing board will have to decide whether to identify the vote count for candidates receiving write-ins in Minot's mayoral election.  Ward County Auditor Devra Smestad tells the Minot Daily News that identifying write-ins isn't required if the outcome of an election wouldn't be affected. According to state law, a write-in candidate can request a count only in a very close contest.
 
     Chuck Barney ran unopposed in the election last week and got more than 1,300 votes.  Minot native Kevin Mehrer ran a write-in campaign in the days running up to the election.  The number of votes cast for all write-in candidates was just more than 1,000.  The canvassing board is slated to meet today.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says an Oklahoma paving company has been fined for doing work in North Dakota without a contractor's license.  Stenehjem says company owner Sylvester Cooper of Spiro, Oklahoma, was fined $5,000 and ordered to repay $5,000 to a customer.  Stenehjem says Spiro has now obtained his contractor's license.
 
     Stenehjem says North Dakota gets an influx of paving companies that come to the state every summer looking for work. He says some are reputable companies but "many are fly-by-night operators who target rural communities, do poor quality work, and then flee the state before the complaints come in."

     Hanson was placed on a waiting list for a new heart more than a year ago. She says she now feels better than ever after returning from a Minnesota hospital.  Hanson says she wants to get back to doing "regular North Dakota stuff" like camping, fishing, riding ATVs and shooting guns with her boyfriend and father.
