Burleigh County Polling Sites Experienced 20-Minute Delay

Posted on 11/8/2022

Eight of the 18 polling stations experienced a 20-minute delay this morning due to computer check-in issues. The poll pads are updated regularly to capture early and mail-in ballots. An update affected the configuration of poll pads and was resolved in 20 minutes-which can seem like an eternity on Election Day morning.

What is the computer check-in process?
•Assists election workers to ensure the voter is in the right location and receives the appropriate ballot.
•Ensures the voter hasn't already voted.

The computer check-in process does not affect the way ballots are cast, counted, and tabulated.

Election workers receive extensive training and are ready to assist you. All precincts close at 7 PM.
