Early Voting

Posted: Updated:

Early voting polls have opened for the 2014 Primary Election.

Ward County Auditor Devra Smestad says many positions are running unopposed, however, early voting and absentee ballots are equally important and she is hoping for a high voter turnout.

North Dakota's representative in congress tops the ballot.

This primary election will also decide whose names are on the November ballot for several state positions including legislators in four districts, secretary of state, attorney general, agricultural and public service commissioner.

For Ward County: sheriff, state's attorney and district judgeship are unopposed.

The city of Minot will be choosing a mayor and several city council, park and school board members.

Smestad says party lines are especially important in a primary election.

(Devra Smestad, Ward County Auditor) "Please stay within one party. You do not have to vote all the races if you're not sure. But be sure you vote for your favorite and stay within that party."

Early voting is available in the Ex-Serviceman's room in the Ward County Courthouse today through Thursday from 11-6 p.m.

Voters will NOT have to go through courthouse security.

Election Day is June 10.
