North Dakota Voter Turnout Reveals an Electorate Unmoved to Cast Ballots in the Primary
Bismarck, ND (KEYZ) Numbers released from the North Dakota Secretary of State's Office Wednesday, show voters were not moved to cast ballots in yesterday's primary, especially in Williams County.
The North Dakota Secretary of State's office is reporting that nearly 16-percent of eligible voters turned out for Tuesday's primary election. Over 105-thousand ballots were cast. The state has more than 671-thousand eligible voters.
Adams County had the highest percentage of voter turnout with just over 50-percent of eligible voters casting ballots. Williams County showed the lowest turnout with just under six percent heading to the polls.
The figures are in sharp contrast to historical trends in North Dakota where voter turnout for June primaries has been around 25%.
