MINOT, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum will give his State of the State address Tuesday morning in Minot.

Here's a breakdown on what you need to know about Monday's address.

Burgum will speak promptly at 10 a.m at Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on the MSU Campus.

The auditorium seats 900 people and roughly 700 will be open to the public, so you're encouraged to get there early.

There will be overflow seating at the Aleshire Theater in Hartnett Hall where the governor's speech will be broadcast.

Shirley says that parking will be limited but there will be no ticketing that will take place prior to and during the governors address.

He also says to try avoid bringing along bags or backpacks.There will be security checks as you enter into the building.

"Folks should plan to get there early the address is at 10 o'clock but folks should plan to get there early it will be a full house. There is overflow areas for viewing areas that will be available but the facility obviously only holds so many folks," said Shirley.

The governor's office says that in the address, the governor will highlight the state's challenges and successes from the past year and outline his vision and agenda for the future.
