June 12, 2012 is the date of North Dakota’s primary election. During the primary, voters will have the opportunity to vote for candidates for the United State Senate, the US House of Representatives, the Governor and Lt. Governor, the State Auditor, State Treasurer, Insurance Commissioner and the Public Service Commissioner all on party ballots. In addition, voters who live in even-number Legislative Districts will have the opportunity to vote for their State Senator and two State Representatives. All party ballots must be cast for one party only. During the primary election, there is not the opportunity to move from one party to another on different races, like there is during the fall election.
