ND Secretary of State Election Candidate Guidance for Electronic Signatures

Due to COVID-19 and the Center for Disease Control’s social distancing guidance, the ND Secretary of State sets forth the following guidance:


The law sets the number of signatures required for a candidate’s name to appear on the ballot for a position in a political subdivision and that cannot be changed.


It is permissible for a candidate to complete a petition form and then transmit it electronically to others allowing them to print the form.  Then, for them to collect signatures (written not typed) from qualified electors (residing within the political subdivision) on the candidate’s behalf. 


When the circulator has secured signatures, they may scan the petition and return it electronically to the candidate who in turn can then transmit the petitions electronically, along with other required documents, to the filing officer for the political subdivision in which the candidate is seeking a position and placement on the ballot. 


Filing Deadline is April 6, 2020 at 4 PM in the City Administration Department, 221 North 5th Street – 4th floor
