North Dakota holds primaries for all qualified parties, and no one running for statewide office can appear on the ballot in November if he or she ran in the primary and failed to get at least 300 primary votes. All three Libertarians running for statewide office in the June 10, 2014 primary have between 900 and 1,050 votes, even though as of this writing, only two-thirds of the precincts have reported. This is the first time any minor party candidates will have exceeded 1,000 votes in a North Dakota primary in the last 40 years. Here is a link to the election returns from the Secretary of State’s web page.
It isn’t easy for minor party candidates in North Dakota to poll many votes in the primary, because a voter who chooses the minor party primary is then unable to vote in a major party primary.
