November election: By the numbers, a record for early voting

Final numbers from the North Dakota Secretary of State’s office confirm that the November 6th midterm election this year was the biggest in terms of early voters in any election in state history.

A total of 157,231 North Dakotans filled out absentee ballots, mail-in ballots and went to early voting precincts.

According to the Secretary of State’s office, that represents 48 percent of all the votes cast in the election.

That’s the largest percentage of early voters in any election going back to June 2008, when early voting centers were first used.

Overall voter turnout for the November 6th election came in at 57 percent of all eligible voters, the highest since the 1986 midterm election featuring Mark Andrews and Kent Conrad competing for a U.S. Senate seat.. That year, 64 percent of all eligible voters cast ballots.
