Election Report From State Director Rae Ann Kelsch

Date: November 08, 2014

Voter turnout across the state was 46.64 percent of the North Dakota voting-age population, which is approximately 545,020 people. In raw numbers, there were 254,198 ballots cast. 
Approximately half of the state legislative seats were up for election to four-year terms, 47 districts with one senator and two representatives. This year, the odd-numbered districts were up for election. 
For the 2015 session of the North Dakota Legislative Assembly, and for its 2015-2016 interim, Republicans will continue to maintain significant majorities, two-thirds, in both the House and Senate.  
The tally for the House is 71 Republicans and 23 Democrats, and for the Senate, 32 Republicans and 15 Democrats. NFIB endorsed 17 candidates in this election, 15 of whom were successful. Republicans also retained all of the statewide offices.
The North Dakota NFIB members took a position to oppose Measure 5, a constitutional amendment for a trust fund for clean water, wildlife and parks. It was defeated by a vote of 198,596 to 51,578, or roughly 80 percent to 20 percent.
