Yes, there are two.

The city of Fargo’s Measure one is approval voting giving a thumbs up or down for each candidate running for positions within Fargo.

The state’s Measure one would create an ethics commission.

They would be responsible for anything related to corruption, elections and lobbying.

“This is the cleanup everyone is crying for across the country and across the state. There aren’t too many things people are agreeing on right now, there is a lot of division in the state and in the country, this is one thing we can all feel good about, a yes vote for Measure 1,” said John Pudner, the Executive Director of Take Back Our Republic.

Those who would hold a spot on the ethics commission would have a 4 year term and would not hold any political office.

They would also be appointed by the governor and state senators.

Measure 2 would change the state’s constitution to say only a citizen of the United States is a qualified elector, instead of “every citizen” which it currently says.

Measure 4 gives red personalized vehicle plates to volunteer first responders at no cost.
