Elections for Statewide offices and Congress
Primary: Tuesday 11 June 2024
General Election: Tuesday 5 November 2024
Tuesday 2 January - Monday 8 April 2024 - Filing - Primary .
Friday 5 April - Tuesday 3 September 2024 - Filing Deadline - Independent/Third/Minor/President .
Tuesday 21 May 2024 - Filing Deadline - Primary Write-in .
Tuesday 11 June 2024 - Primary . Polling hours reportedly 7:00a-9:00p CDT (1200-0200 UTC) / 7:00a-9:00p MDT (1300-0300 UTC). Voting places open between 7:00a to 12:00n and remain open until 7:00p to 9:00p depending on the size of the town. The western half of the state is in Mountain Time but that is, of course, the more sparsely populated part of the state, so it is not as problematic to the networks as might be otherwise suggested by simple geography. In 2018, polls closed at 8pm CDT in Cass County and at 7pm CDT or 7pm MDT in most other polling places.

NOTE: Although we at The Green Papers keep to the statutory latest poll closing times of 9 PM local time [0300 GMT re: the Central Time Zone/0400 GMT re: the Mountain Time Zone], please know the North Dakota State Election Code (in its Section 16.1-01-03) allows for what has to fairly be described as the most extreme Local Option as regards poll opening/closing anywhere in America: not only may individual Counties and Municipalities in North Dakota set an earlier poll closing time than 9 PM local time (so long as it is not earlier than 7 PM local time) but these can even set differing poll closing times for individual precincts within each such jurisdiction (County or Municipality)! As a practical matter, however, it appears that polls in most of the State have tended to be closed by no later than 8 PM Central Time/7 PM Mountain Time (0200 GMT [0100 GMT during Daylight Savings])-- please check locally!


The primary is for the Democratic and Republican parties.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
