BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The most suspenseful races on the North Dakota ballot aren’t at the top.

Voters will choose their next governor and have their say in the presidential race, but Republicans Doug Burgum and Donald Trump are seen as heavy favorites. It’s a handful of ballot questions that offer the most intrigue Tuesday.

One asks voters whether they’d like to legalize medical marijuana - giving people the right to buy from state-regulated dispensaries when a doctor prescribes it.

Another would raise the tobacco tax in a big way, although it would be the first time in nearly a quarter century. The money would go to public health funds, including one for veterans.

A third would guarantee certain rights to crime victims.
