Polling place moved after explosives found in Lewiston

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Election officials in Lewiston say they moved a polling place after someone found 50 pounds of dynamite nearby.

Authorities made the switch Tuesday morning moments after someone cleaning an adjacent building discovered the explosives.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that voters once destined for the city’s police training center are now being redirected to the Lewiston Community Center to cast ballots in Tuesday’s primary election.

Meanwhile, a bomb squad from Spokane was called in to investigate the explosives.
