Meet the candidates seeking statewide office in North Dakota

In election years, North Dakota Living offers its platform as the state’s largest circulated publication to familiarize voters with the candidates seeking statewide office.

North Dakota voters will decide victors in the Nov. 8 general election for the offices of U.S. senator, representative in Congress, secretary of state, attorney general, agriculture commissioner, tax commissioner and two public service commissioners. Political party endorsements are indicated for statewide political party offices.

North Dakota Living, the N.D. Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives and North Dakota’s electric cooperatives do not endorse or recommend candidates for election.

Civic reminders

In this issue of North Dakota Living, we feature the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, in which hundreds of electric cooperatives sponsor local students, who join other students from across the country for a weeklong experience in Washington, D.C., to learn about their government, history and cooperatives. For these youth, this experience likely impacts how they view their civic responsibilities for a lifetime.

Youthful energy and ideals are to be admired. As we grow older, it never hurts to be reminded of our good fortune to be able to participate in our government.
