What is Vote By Mail?

Updated 02/07/2024

Vote by Mail is an election where all ballots are cast as absentee. In North Dakota "absentee" means the ballots are voted at home and returned to the County Auditor's office as early as 40 days before Election Day, but no later than the day before Election Day. All ballots have to be returned to the County Auditor the day before the election or postmarked the day before the election.
