Bottineau School Board Election Notice

As per Governor Burgum’s Executive Order 2020-19 issued on April 2, 2020 relating to the COVID-19 Pandemic, he has waived our statutory requirement to designate one or more physical polling locations and will permit school districts to conduct their 2020 annual school board election via absentee ballot. At the Bottineau School Board Meeting the Bottineau Board voted to hold our June 2, 2020 election by absentee ballot only and will not have a polling place for voters to come and cast their vote.
