Campaign Ads are Legal on Election Day

You may be seeing campaign ads today and thinking that it’s illegal to be running them on election day.
However—it’s not.

A federal judge called North Dakota’s law on campaigning on election day “archaic” and “unconstitutional” back in 2012.
Judge Daniel Hovland wrote in his order that law enforcement officials cannot prosecute anybody who violates the century old ban.

State law does still keep people from campaigning outside of a polling location however.

So, while you may be tired of the constant bombardment of ads….you won’t be rid of them until November 7th.
