With less than two weeks to go before the June primary, some North Dakotans are taking advantage of early voting options – such as absentee ballots.
The primary will be held June 14th.
Secretary of State Al Jaeger said as of Thursday, June 2nd, 17,454 people have cast absentee ballots.
"The requests for absentee ballots numbered almost 37,000," Jaeger said. "We have a fairly good return."
Jaeger says some counties are conducting “ballot by mail,” and some counties are offering early voting precincts.
