JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Much like the other 3,000+ counties nationwide, Stutsman County is bracing itself for a day that comes just once every four years — Presidential General Election Tuesday.
With nearly 10,000 eligible Stutsman County residents having cast ballots back in the 2008 general election, Stutsman County Auditor/Chief Operating Officer Casey Bradley says he is anticipating about that many, if not more, voters for this election.
Polls will open at the Jamestown Civic Center at 7 a.m. tomorrow and will close at 7 p.m. All Stutsman County residents are permitted to vote at the Civic Center. Bradley says election officials do a good job of getting voters through as quickly as possible.
North Dakota does not have voter registration, but in order to vote, you must be;
- A U.S. Citizen
- At least 18 years old on election day
- A legal North Dakota resident
- A resident in the precinct for 30 days preceding the election
Results could be in as early as 8:30 or 9 p.m. and uploaded online, Bradley says.
Besides the contentious races for the presidency, U.S. Congress and initiated ballot measures, District 12 residents of Jamestown will be voting to send either Democrat John Grabinger or Republican Bernie Satrom to the North Dakota Senate. District 12 North Dakota House of Representatives will also be decided amongst Democrats Jessica Haak and Lyle Hanson as well as Republicans Alex Looysen and Ken Hall.
