MAPLEWOOD, Minnesota — Polls are open in Minnesota, and a steady stream of people are coming to St. Jerome Catholic Church in Maplewood to cast ballots.

Three people were lined up outside the church Tuesday morning before the doors opened.

Voters tell The Associated Press that they are ready for change, citing the way the state has handled the Vikings stadium and MNSure.

Fifty-nine-year-old Kathleen Leahy says she voted along party lines as a Republican. She says she doesn't think the state is doing well under Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and MNSure is a "fiasco." She says she doesn't think the government should be in charge of health care.
