Voter Turnout

Nov 8, 2012 at 7:49 am

North Dakota’s voter turnout rate slipped during Tuesday’s election.   A total of 324-thousand-597 ballots were cast – 61-percent of eligible voters.   That compares to a turnout of 64-percent four-years ago and 65-percent eight years ago.  North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger says a closer look at the numbers shows the rate was down but more people voted.  Nearly 35-hundred additional votes were cast but the state's population has grown as well.  In Grand Forks County 30-thousand-175 ballots were cast.  Minnesota's voter turnout rate was 76-percent.
