YLEH: How to fill out your ballot application


Update: Tuesday night, we reported if you select you would like to receive a mail-in ballot for all 2020 elections, you cannot vote in-person if it’s allowed later in the year.

A spokesperson from the Secretary of State says as long as you don’t fill out that mail-in ballot, you can vote at the polls if they are open.

KX News is Your Local Election Headquarters. We’re sharing how to correctly fill out your ballot application form. 

At Minot’s weekly press conference, Ward County auditor Devra Smestad says she’s receiving four to five calls every hour from people asking how to fill it out. 

She said the application that comes in the mail is highlighted.

At the top, you check if you would like to vote by mail for all 2020 elections, or select if you just want the June election. 

Below that section, you check which type of ID you’re using, like a driver’s license or a tribal ID, and then you fill in the ID number.

She said the next section is the most important.

“I can’t stress enough, this is an affidavit that this is all true information for you. It must be signed and it must be dated. We are sending back many because they sign it and don’t date it,” Smestad said.

If you still haven’t received your ballot application, contact your county auditor as soon as possible.
