GRAFTON, N.D. (AP) _ Voters in northeastern North Dakota's Walsh
County have overwhelming approved a shared-parenting initiative.
The county measure passed Tuesday with 66 percent approval.
The measure establishes equal parental rights for divorced or
separated parents, as long as neither parent is legally determined
to be an unfit parent. It was spearheaded by a Park River man who
was the main promoter of a similar statewide ballot measure that
voters rejected in 2006.
