HILLSBORO, N.D. (AP) - A proposal to build a $2.2 million addition to the Traill County Courthouse is sparking interest in mail-in voting.

The county is holding mail-in voting for the first time for the June 8 primary election. The auditor's office said that as of Friday, nearly 900 people had requested mail-in ballots.

About 1,200 votes were cast in the 2006 primary, which did not offer mail-in voting.

Polling places will be open in Mayville and Hillsboro during next month's election for people who do not mail their ballots.

The building proposal, which requires 60 percent approval, is a scaled-down version of a $6.4 million bond issue that voters rejected twice in 2008.
