• Head Judge Cal Preisinger of Ward 1-Precinct 2 in Brainerd has been an election judge for 10 years. At about 11 a.m., he said the number of people coming in to vote was slow and steady.

• As of 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, ballots from 28 out of 44 precincts were in for Crow Wing County. Election judges checked in with county staff on the main floor of the historic courthouse in Brainerd, where they received a number. They then went to the second floor to check in with the election staff.

• Head Judge Denise Sundquist of the Unorganized Territory-White Precinct said voter turnout was slow, but the day overall went well. Sundquist said she woke up for her day about 5:30 a.m. and was waiting in line with the other judges at the courthouse at 9:30 p.m. Sundquist said she has been a judge for about 10 years. She became interested in serving as a judge when she worked at the Brainerd School District and was its judge for elections.

"I really like working with the election staff at the county," she said.
