Wahpeton decides against hot dogs at polling place

School officials say a consultant working with district administrators on Tuesday's vote decided the giveaway would not be a good idea.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger tells KFGO radio that state law prohibits any enticement that could be viewed as a method to influence an election.
