FARGO - The results were positive on the initiative to thank and recognize volunteer first responders in North Dakota.

As of 11:15 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, with 397 of 424 precincts reporting, North Dakota ballot Measure 4 was passing with 64 percent of voters voting yes and 36 percent voting no.

Measure 4, one of two statutory measures on the Nov. 6 ballot in North Dakota, will require personalized license plates be provided to volunteer emergency responders - firefighters and emergency medical service volunteers - free of charge, while also allowing free entrance by the volunteers to any state park.

Norval Semchenko, sponsor of the measure, said he hopes this measure shows what a great service these responders do.

“I hope this measure is effective in communicating to these volunteer first responders that they really are appreciated and we do recognize the sacrifice they make for us,” he said.
