Make your voice heard by heading to the polls on June 9 (primary election) or Nov. 3 (general election), or turning your absentee ballot into your local county auditor’s office before Election Day.
Real quick, here are a few of the most important things to know:
- Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. CT/MT on Election Day. If you are in line by 7 p.m. CT/MT you must be allowed to vote.
- If you are registered to vote at your current address, you must vote at your assigned polling location. Find your polling place at the North Dakota Secretary of State’s website.
- If you are not registered to vote at your current address. Visit the North Dakota Secretary of State’s website for more details.
- Your completed absentee ballots must be received by your city or township clerk by 5 p.m. CT the day before Election Day in order to be counted. If you still have your absentee ballot, drop it off at your city or township clerk's office by 5 p.m. CT on June 8 or Nov. 2.
And don’t forget:
If you have a particular candidate you want to vote for, sign their nominating petition in order for them to make it to the ballot on Election Day.
