As the March 7, 2017 date for the Fargo Public Schools mill levy approval vote approaches, there have been questions regarding the availability of voting options. Below is a list of all the options available for eligible voters:
- Absentee Ballots – Now Available
Absentee ballots became available on January 26, 2017. An absentee ballot can be requested online through the North Dakota Secretary of State Website at https://vip.sos.nd.gov/absentee, or in person at the Cass County Auditor’s Office, 211 9th Street South in Fargo. To be counted for the election, completed absentee ballots must be postmarked or returned to the auditor’s office on or before March 6, 2017.
- Early Voting – February 27, 28 and March 1
The Baymont Inn, located at 333 13th Avenue South, Fargo, will host early voting on February 27, 28, and March 1. Hours for early voting will be from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily.
- Election Day Voting – March 7
Polling sites are open on Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
On Election Day, care has been given to provide the easiest voting option for the public. This is a precinct election, which means voters must vote in the precinct in which they reside. To that point, Fargo Public Schools is holding election sites in the traditional general election locations, which are listed below. Please be aware that due to site availability, there are three exceptions to the traditional vote center locations, which are noted.
The ultimate goal is for the public to come out and vote. After choosing the date for the election, Fargo Public Schools has taken special care to make sure the public has every opportunity to cast a vote and participate to the fullest extent. Now, it’s up to the public to get out and vote!
