North Dakota Early Voting

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Almost 8,000 North Dakota voters so far have visited "early voting" precincts in seven counties to mark their ballots.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger says that when absentee ballots are included - more than 54,000 North Dakotans have made their choices already in the November election.

That figure equals 25 percent of the number of North Dakotans who voted in 2006, in the last election when the president and governor weren't on the ballot.

Burleigh, Cass, Grand Forks, Morton, Stark, Stutsman and Ward counties are hosting early voting precincts for walk-up voting. The process involves less paperwork, because absentee voters have to fill out an application to get a ballot.
