A few interesting facts from the midterm election:
Unofficially, roughly 45 percent of North Dakotans who voted in Tuesday’s election did so via absentee and mail-in ballots and early precinct voting.
Based on numbers from the Secretary of State’s office, just over 329,000 ballots were cast and roughly 150,000 ballots were early votes.
Turnout was high for this year’s midterm election (57 percent) — in fact, the highest in any midterm since 1986 (64 percent).
Early voting set a record for most early ballots cast in any North Dakota election.
The county with the fewest votes in Tuesday’s election: Slope County, home to Amidon, where 384 ballots were cast.
