Spirit Lake voters apparently overwhelmingly supported the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname in a referendum Tuesday. The Herald is still trying to verify the results with election judges. Nickname supporter Eunice Davidson said her source at the ballot-counting site said the unofficial results are 774 “yes” and 378 “no,” giving the nickname 67 percent of the vote.
