DICKINSON — The ballot for the June 14 primary election in Stark County is three pages long, with several important local races and two measures. This article will not feature candidates in races who are running uncontested, or in races featuring fewer or equal number of candidates to allotted votes.

In a political party primary election in North Dakota, voters may only cast a vote for the candidates of a single political party. The ballot contains two political parties; one in each section. Stark County Auditor Karen Richard reminds voters that should they cast a vote in more than one political party's section, the ballot will be rejected. However, all votes on the "No Party" and "Measures" will still be counted.

The Early Voting Center will be at the Prairie Hills Mall, located at 1681 Third Ave W, in Dickinson. Voting dates and times are June 6 through 10, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. The final day for the early voting center casting will be June 11, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
