United Tribes NewsElection polling place established at United Tribes
13 February 2012
BISMARCK (UTN) - Voters who live near the city of Bismarck will come to United Tribes Technical College to cast their votes in the 2012 elections. The college has been designated as a precinct polling place in Burleigh County.
County Auditor/Treasurer Kevin Glatt informed the college February 1 that United Tribes had been selected as the polling place for Precinct 3001.
United Tribes replaces two former polling locations at University of Mary and Prairie Rose School, said Glatt. It serves voters in Legislative District 30.
Glatt recently visited the campus to examine possible voting locations and settled on the college's Skill Center, the first building inside the main, stone-columned entrance gate off University Drive.
Constructed in 1978, the UTTC Skill Center will accommodate voters with convenient parking, ample utility capacity for voting equipment, and plenty of space for voting machines, booths and poll workers. The facility has served during a number of past election cycles in campus and community voter education programs. In 2006, Glatt made a presentation there during a voter information workshop.
The 2012 election cycle includes two major dates. The June 12 North Dakota Primary Election will also contain ballot items for city elections and the Bismarck Public School District. The 2012 General Election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 6.
Precinct 3001 includes all of Lincoln Township, less that portion north and west of the canal area outside the Bismarck corporate city limits, and that portion of Ft. Rice Township north of State Highway 1804 and west of the Desert Road, said Glatt.
Like all polling locations, the United Tribes Skill Center will be open for voting on election days from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Poll workers will arrive earlier and leave later.
The street address for United Tribes Technical College is 3315 University Drive. The college is located in Burleigh County, just outside Bismarck city limits.
