COVID-19 and Patient Voting
Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:
For North Dakota's upcoming statewide election on June 9th, all eligible voters will be receiving an application in the mail from the North Dakota Secretary of State’s Office. If you do not receive an application by May 11th, contact your county auditor. The voter will complete their application and mail it to the county auditor using a postage-paid envelope. Once the auditor’s office receives the application and verifies the information is filled in correctly and has been signed, a ballot will be sent. Voted ballots need to be returned by mail by June 8th or at your county's secure drop box by 4 p.m. on June 9th, primary election day. More information on this change can be found here.
Beyond this election, North Dakota is a no-excuse absentee voting state, so any registered voter in North Dakota may vote by absentee ballot. Applications for absentee ballots may be submitted anytime within the calendar year of an election. The simplest method to apply is to electronically fill out and print the absentee application for submittal using the electronic Absentee Ballot Application Wizard. Absentee ballot applications are to be delivered to the appropriate election official by mail, in person, by fax or as a scanned attachment to an email. More information on this process can be found here.
