Polls close at 7 p.m. The only public poll so far in the race, a February 21-24 Gravis Marketing survey, found Heitkamp barely leading, 43 percent to 40 percent, among registered voters in the state.

A spokeswoman for the state elections office says she is unaware of any problems with balloting as voters visit their local precincts to narrow the field of candidates in a Republican U.S. Senate contest and nine Congressional races, both Democratic and Republican.

The candidates who win Tuesday's primaries will run in the November general election.

The state's tilt toward Democrats in recent years gives the party reason for some optimism.

Friedman, who said she chose to run for office in part because Trump "scared my kids", said potential Democrat-led impeachment proceedings in the House would be "one of the most serious moments in our nation's history", but wouldn't commit to voting for impeachment without reviewing any impeachment articles.
