New voting Districts effective July 1, 2022
The realigning of districts, based on the 2020 census, has been completed and approved by the state legislature.  Most districts had little change while others changed considerably. With our population growth, we gained a little over a 1/2 seat which we will share with Williston.  The new district's voting location will be City Hall.  Please refer to the street listing with districts below to find your polling location.
