Willison sees higher voter turnout, changes voting venue

By  | 

WILLISTON, N.D. - Williston saw high voter turnout Tuesday in a new location.

For the first time, Williston's ARC played host to Election Day. The ARC replaced the Raymond Family Community Center, since it is more accessible.

Beginning when polls opened at 7 a.m. and continuing at least until lunchtime, lines were out the door to cast ballots.

County Auditor Beth Innis says she also has seen more absentee ballots than ever before. While the first time using the ARC for Election Day wasn't perfect, it definitely provided an improvement.

"There's a little more logistics I'm going to have to do. Probably have more tables, decide how to streamline lines a little bit, but we did have one woman that said she's lived in Williston 30 years, and she said this is the fastest she's ever voted in 30 years of voting in Williston," says Beth Innis, Williams County Auditor.
