Election officials increased security at four precincts in Minneapolis where a contentious state House race would be decided Tuesday.

Sergeant at Arms monitored polling places in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

The city didn't want a repeat from earlier this year when a fight broke out at a caucus.

The race between DFL Representative Phyllis Kahn and Mohamud Noor has been tense and included accusations of voter fraud and intimidation.
