Tuesday Primary a Test of New Voting Process in ND

June 9, 2008

Bismarck, ND – Tuesday's primary will be the first real-life test of several new ways North Dakotans can vote. Casting ballots by mail is now an option in 22 of the state's 53 counties.

Jim Moench with the North Dakota Disabilities Advocacy Consortium says that helps people with disabilities participate because they won't have to worry about finding transportation to a polling place. Counties will be watching to see how the public responds to the idea.

"And they will be determining whether they want to continue that and vote by mail for the general election."

Automark voting machines will also be available to make the voting process accessible to individuals with "all different kinds of disabilities," according to Moench. He adds Automark voting machine are portable, which makes it easy to bring the machine to the voter.
