Primary elections are being held across the state of North Dakota today, June 9, under historical terms. This is our state’s first election being held by mail only.
Gov. Doug Burgum signed an executive order back in March to allow counties to opt out of the requirement that they open at least one physical polling location. All 53 counties chose to avoid in-person voting entirely. Applications for absentee ballots were sent in the mail to all voting-age residents. You should have received your ballot in the mail if one was requested, and mailed them back to your county auditor. By the middle of the day, yesterday, approximately 137,000 ballots had been received.

Most county offices have drop-off boxes for ballots, but you’ll need to drop yours off by 4 p.m. today. Counting of ballots will start at 7 p.m. Stay tuned into our ND United Facebook and Twitter profiles for results, tonight and tomorrow.
