2020 Election Information

Around April 20th, Emmons County voters will receive an application in the mail from the ND Secretary of State’s Office to Vote by Mail for the June 9th Primary Election.  All eligible Emmons County voters will receive an application to complete and return to the Emmons County Auditor’s Office.  When completing the application, check the “all elections” box if you wish to receive a ballot by mail in the General Election too.  This will allow the Auditor’s Office to automatically send you a ballot for the General Election in the fall and less postage expense for both the voter and the County.  The voter will be mailed a ballot for their precinct, along with the return envelopes and instructions for completing and returning their ballot. 

If you do not receive an application by May 1st, 2020, please call the Emmons County Auditor’s Office at (701) 254-4807.

This Primary Election will NOT be a physical polling place on Election Day due to COVID-19; however, there will be a secure ballot drop-off location at the Emmons County Courthouse available until 4:00 pm on June 9th (Election Day) to help save postage if you wish to use it. 

In accordance with Governor Burgum’s Executive Order 2020-13, there will be one Express Voting ballot marking device in the County Courthouse during the normal hours of operation (8:30 am – 5:00 pm) from April 30, 2020 through Election Day on June 9, 2020.  Please call the Emmons County Auditor at (701) 254-4807 to set up an appointment if you need this service. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please do not hesitate to call the Emmons County Auditor’s Office at (701) 254-4807.  Thank You!
