In North Dakota, we’re seeing a trend toward fewer polling places.
"That's been a trend since the 1950s," said Deputy Secretary of State Jim Silrum. "Even in 1980, we had over 1200 polling places. In 2016, we had just over 400."
Silrum said a big reason for that has been the rising costs of elections.
"Not only do you have poll workers that must be in every polling location, you also have voting machines," Silrum said. "You also have assistive voting technology for people with disabilities to vote privately and independently."
