It’s primary election day in North Dakota, and for a newsroom that means an evening of fun, togetherness and a bit of last-minute stress as the deadline approaches.
The polls close at 7 p.m. tonight, with vote totals expected at 8:30 or 9 p.m. But the whole paper has to be done and out the door by 11. That gives us very little time to write, proof, place and send everything.
It can be stressful, but I like it, too — the camaraderie is great and this being the Midwest, there’s always food around.
I just made half a pot of coffee.
Huzzah for elections!
