Absentee Ballot Application

To receive an absentee ballot, you must first complete an Absentee Ballot Application.  Applications are only valid from January 1st to December 31st each year. You MUST re-apply each year to be able to vote absentee in an election. If you have already applied for a 2022 absentee ballot, you do not need to apply again. If you are unsure, please contact the Auditor’s Office at 701-577-4500. As a courtesy, in mid-September, Absentee Ballot Applications were mailed to eligible voters that had previously not requested a ballot for the November General Election.

Where can I complete an application?

Applications can be completed online, by requesting an application from the Auditor’s Office, or in person at the Auditor’s Office.

What do I need to know when completing the application?

  • To help us efficiently process your application, please PRINT your name.
  • Indicate the election(s) you would like a ballot for. If you only select one, then you will only receive a ballot for that election.
  • Make sure that your current residential address is up-to-date with the ND DOT Driver’s License office. You can do this online on the Driver’s License Office websiteIf you move between the June 14th and November 8th elections, you must complete a new application.
  • If you are a North Dakota resident living outside the United States and do not possess one of the other forms of identification, you may use a Passport or Military ID.

NDCC § 16.1-07-06 states:

  • A copy of supplemental documentation, if necessary, can be used when applying for an absentee/mail ballot.
  • Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant for completion and resubmission.

Can I obtain a ballot for someone else?

An individual can obtain an absentee ballot for up to three individuals in addition to their own ballot for one specific election by using the Agent Absentee Ballot Application. Additionally, an applicant living with a disability that prevents the individual from traveling away from the individual’s home to obtain an acceptable form of identification may use an attester. The attester must provide his or her name, North Dakota driver’s license, nondriver’s, or tribal identification number, and sign the absentee/mail ballot application form to attest to the applicant’s North Dakota residency and voting eligibility.

How do I submit my Application?

Return your application to the Auditor’s Office by mail, Drop Box, or in-person no later than October 28 if you would like your ballot mailed to you. If you have applied for a ballot, but have not received one by October 17, please contact the Auditor’s Office. Ballots will not be mailed after October 31; if you wish to vote absentee after this date, you will need to apply for, and receive, a ballot at the Auditor’s Office.

There is a very direct relationship between the amount of standing water the number of mosquitoes we have during the year. The more rainfall and flooding the more likely it will be a bad year. There are exceptions, but they are not very common.

Adulticide treatments occur near sunset when mosquitoes are most active and sprays can be the most effective. In the summertime that can mean 10 pm or later. Depending on the application method you may or may not even hear or see the vehicle. Aerial applications are conducted with either a helicopter (rural areas) or airplane (urban areas) and have a swath width of 1,000 feet. The aircraft may not even fly over your property, but you are being treated. Ground vehicles drive past your property going 10-15 mph and avoid doubling back on themselves.

Larvicide treatments occur throughout spring, summer and fall, but typically occur in unpopulated areas, so those are also not very visible. Larvicide treatments also occur via air and ground. Aerial applications often take place just after dawn or before sunset when weather is calm. Ground applications often use residual products that are effective for 3 to 4 weeks, so even if an area is wet, it likely has already been treated.

Larvicides are much more effective than adulticides for two major reasons:

  1. Immature mosquitoes (larva) are only found in standing water, and
  2. The pesticides we use are very specific to mosquito larva.

Adulticides are less specific to mosquitoes, are susceptible to weather conditions, and necessitate that an adult mosquito must encounter a spray droplet. Mosquito adulticides offer no residual activity and are quickly rendered inert when exposed to sunlight. However, both components are part of an integrated vector control program and accomplish very different tasks.

Read more about treatments on our Types of Vector Control webpage.

Vector control treatments conducted by the U.S. Air Force Reserve (USAFR) are only a request. The USAFR has the ability cancel or change their plans with little prior notice. Spray requests are scheduled 2 years in advance. This makes targeting their arrival date very difficult. Some years all the pieces come together and others it does not. Additionally, there are several state and federal regulations that must be addressed before they are able to spray, and when the regulatory landscape changes, USAFR sprays may be canceled. Williston Vector Control actively works with the USAFR to anticipate these changes, but it can take months before a resolution is found.

The USAFR only sprays a small proportion of the total annual spray acreages that the Williston Vector Control District does. The rest is treated through an aerial contractor using much smaller and more versatile aircraft.

We operate a variety of mosquito traps that are dispersed throughout the county and its municipalities. We collect these traps on a daily basis, excluding weekends and holidays. Traps are counted and the numbers of individual species are recorded. Pools of mosquitoes are then tested for the presence of harmful diseases like West Nile virus.

To see average trap counts for Williston, Ray, and Grenora, visit our Trap Counts webpage.

Guidelines | The Williston Vector Control District (WVCD) follows the most current guidelines from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) when responding to the detection of a vector borne disease like West Nile Virus.

Risk Assessment | WVCD uses a risk assessment calculator provided by a software program called VectorSurv. This calculator is adapted from the CDC and is used as a general guide for assessing the overall risk of an area. There are five surveillance categories where risk ranges from 1 (lowest risk) to 5 (highest risk). These categories and risk levels provide a general guide for district operations. Three of the 5 risk assessment categories are used: Environment, Abundance, and Infection. The other two, Seroconversion and Dead Bird Infections, are not used by WVCD. These three are averaged to provide an overall risk. Additional details can be found on the VectoSurv website.

Mosquito Surveillance | WVCD performs routine mosquito surveillance within the district using a network of mosquito traps. These traps are spread throughout the district and are designed to attract and catch various species of adult mosquito. Some of the traps are collected daily (excluding weekends/holidays) while others are placed during specific times and dates to focus on problem areas. A special type of trap is used when looking for mosquitoes that could be carrying a disease, such as West Nile Virus. These traps are designed to collect adult mosquitoes without killing them. Once the traps are emptied, the mosquitoes are quickly frozen and used for disease testing.

Testing | WVCD uses a process called Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to test mosquitoes for West Nile Virus (WNV), Saint Louis Encephalomyelitis virus (SLE), and Western Equine Encephalomyelitis virus (WEE). The use of PCR allows the district to quickly test for these diseases and to develop an appropriate action plan to mitigate the spread of these diseases to humans. If any of these viruses are detected in a mosquito pool, the district notifies the NDDoH, the local emergency rooms, and schedules a spray event for the area surrounding the collection site. This area will continue to be monitored until no virus is detected, after which normal surveillance resumes.

Action Thresholds | In addition to disease surveillance, WVCD also manages nuisance mosquitoes common to the area. A set of action thresholds are defined for different classes of mosquito (nuisance VS disease vector). Once a threshold is reached, operations to manage the adult mosquito populations are initiated. An increase in the chance of disease transmission is not the only threshold used for increasing mosquito control activities. These include both aerial and ground sprays using an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) application of a pesticide.

One of the most effective things you can do is to remove any standing water you may have on your property. This can be flower pots that hold water, baby pools, or old tires you have laying around. Source reduction is the best way to combat mosquitoes!

If you have noticed an increase in the mosquito population in your area, you can submit a Vector Control Service Request. Service Requests help us to find unknown mosquito development sites and pinpoint problematic areas.

Cash or check are accepted onsite at the campground (please visit the pay station). Campsites must be paid in full upon making a reservation.

For 2022, campsites may be reserved same day or in advance for the duration of the year for a maximum of 14 days (13 nights) and a maximum of four sites per reservation, per person. Campsites can still also be reserved onsite/day of by paying at the park with cash or check.

Campsites can only be reserved in advance by booking online (not available for McGregor Dam). For 2022 only, there is no limit for how far in advance you can book a campsite. Campers may not reserve more than four sites per person, per reservation, per park.

You may notice that your tax statement looks slightly different than it has in recent years.

  • In September 2020, Williams County transitioned to a new tax software and online property search/payment platform. In 2021, updates to the software enabled us to update the names of tax districts in the “Taxes by District” section to allow for more detail.
  • Also, in 2021, several taxing districts were renamed and reconfigured to account for the reorganization of Williston Public School District (WPSD) #1 and Williams County School District (WCSD) #8 into the new school district, Williston Basin School District (WBSD) #7. Additionally, there were several property transfers between school districts, which also affected taxing districts across Williams County.

TIF Districts

What changed? During the tax software conversion process we were unable to split out the specific TIF tax distribution for properties located in a City of Williston TIF District for the tax years 2018 and 2019 for the purpose of printing tax statements. Due to the updates made to taxing districts in 2021, the name of a TIF District had to be updated.

How will it look? On your statement, you will see $0 in 2019 for any TIF District, a dollar amount in 2020 for a particular TIF district, and a dollar amount in 2021 for the newly named district. If you have questions about these distributions and how the information appears on your statement, please contact the Treasurer’s Office.

Legislative Tax Relief

What changed? The legislative tax relief amount reflects the property tax savings provided by the state of North Dakota as it relates to Human Service Zones (social services) and schools. The state was unable to calculate a value for the new school district, WBSD #7, because the new district did not exist in 2012, which is the tax year the calculation is based on.

How will it look? Legislative tax relief for property owners located in WBSD #7 will appear lower than previous years. This does not mean that there is not property tax relief, it just means it cannot be calculated at this time. This amount does not change or impact the amount of the property tax owed.

 

This is the first time the defendant appears in front of the Judge. The Judge will set a bail amount and full conditions of bond, typically including a no contact with a victim.

This hearing occurs in felony cases only. Testimony is heard by the Judge. The prosecuting attorney must establish probable cause that a crime has been committed by the defendant.

This hearing occurs in misdemeanor cases only. At this hearing, the defendant will plead guilty or not guilty. If the defendant pleads not guilty, the court will schedule a Pretrial Conference. If a guilty plea is entered, the Judge will immediately sentence the defendant .

In felony cases, this hearing is scheduled when the defendant decides to change his/her plea to guilty. At this hearing, a victim has the right to submit a Victim Impact Statement. These statements are important for the Judge to recognize all of the ways the crime has affected the victim.

Victims and witnesses may be required to testify at a trial. A trial may either be a Jury Trial or a Bench Trial, which is heard by a judge, not a jury.

The North Dakota Fire Danger Rating is a broad scale assessment that is issued each morning at approximately 6:45 CST during fire season by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The fire season is typically from April 1st to October 31st. The USFS calculates the Fire Danger Rating using grassland fuel moisture, forecast temperature, humidity, wind speed, and topography.

Device controlled fires, such as those from a grill, fire table, or gas camp stove, are not addressed under the burn ban, but the operator should always practice proper fire prevention. They should be located on a hard, non-organic surface at least 15 feet away from vegetation and a fire extinguisher or water should be available on-site. Visit the Burning in Williams County webpage for more information.

There may be additional localized restrictions, so it is always best to contact your local fire district for more information.

Campfires, even if they are in a fire ring, are *not* permitted when the Williams County Burn Ban is in effect. For more information about the Burn Ban, please visit the Burning in Williams County webpage.

There may be additional localized restrictions, so it is always best to contact your local fire district for more information.

A Fire Emergency and Automatic Burn Ban is in effect from April 5, 2022, through December 1, 2022, whenever the ND Fire Danger Index is in the VERY HIGH, or EXTREME status and/or a Red Flag Warning has been issued for Williams County. Check the Burning in Williams County webpage for the Fire Danger Rating and Red Flag Warning status. Always check BEFORE you burn!

What is included in the ban?
The ban includes the the ignition of fireworks, garbage burning, campfires, burning of farm or crop land, and unnecessary off-road motorized travel. Burning will be allowed with a Low, Moderate, or High Fire Danger Rating or upon approval of the local fire response authority having jurisdiction over the designated area.

What is not included in the ban?
Device controlled fires, such as those from a grill, fire table, or gas camp stove, are not addressed under the burn ban, but the operator should always practice proper fire prevention. When the Fire Danger Rating is HIGH or greater, the device should be on a hard non-organic surface at least 15 feet away from dry vegetation.

Any individual who willfully violates the Burn Ban is guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor (NDCC 37-17.1.10.1: MAXIMUM SENTENCE OF 30 DAYS IN JAIL AND A $1500.00 FINE).

The Williams County Sheriff’s Office is a participating agency in NDTip, a service that enables citizens to submit anonymous tips about crimes, suspicious activity, or non-emergency traffic concerns.

To post bond for someone being held in the Williams County Correctional Center, you must post bond with the court that made the charges (e.g. Northwest District Judicial Court or Municipal Court).

NW District Judicial Court

If the individual is being held on charges from the NW District Judicial Court, and you wish to pay with a credit card, bond can be posted with the Clerk of District Court between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday – Friday. Their office is located on the first floor of the Williams County Courthouse (205 E Broadway). If you wish to pay with cash or a surety bond, bond can be paid at the Williams County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is located on the 3rd floor of the Williams County Law Enforcement Center (223 E Broadway). Bond can be posted after hours, on weekends, and on holidays at the Correctional Center. Please enter through the Public Access door located on the northwest side of the Law Enforcement Center (223 E Broadway).

Bond can also be posted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, online using a credit card at JailATM.com or by using cash or a credit card at the kiosk located in the main entryway of the Law Enforcement Center (E Broadway entrance).

City of Williston Municipal Court

If the individual is being held on charges from the City of Williston Municipal Court, you can post bond between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday – Friday, at the Municipal Clerk of Court’s office located on the first floor of the Williams County Courthouse (205 E Broadway). After hours, weekends and holidays bond must be posted at the Williston Police Department, which is located on the second floor of the Williams County Law Enforcement Center (223 E Broadway). They can be reached at 701-577-1212.

Ray or Tioga Police Departments

To post bond for an inmate being held for the Ray or Tioga Police Departments, please contact them directly for more information.

Per ND Century Code 29-08-28, when posting bond for another person, the money becomes the property of the defendant and will be applied to any fines resulting from the disposition of their case. If the defendant does not appear in court, the bond will be forfeited. Any money refunded will be given to the defendant.

To find out the payoff balance for city special assessments, please contact the City directly.

The payoff balance for special assessments managed by Williams County can be found using the iTax system. First, search for your property. Then, on the property record page, select “Detail” in the center box titled “Taxes.” The table will show your Bond Principal and Interest owed for the current tax year, but also the Balance to pay off. For questions about County-managed specials, please contact the Finance Department.

A “mill” is simply 1/1000th of anything. Mills are used to calculate property taxes. Williams County calculates the “mills” based on budgets determined by each taxing district in the county. Learn more about mill levies in Williams County on the Mill Levy Information webpage.

Instead of getting several separate bills, you get one property tax statement from Williams County, and we distribute your payment to each of the other entities.

Both the value of the mill AND the number of mills can affect your tax bill. If the same number of mills are on your tax statement this year as there were last year, but your home’s value increased by 5%, your tax bill will rise by 5% as well. Learn about how your property tax bill is calculated with Property Tax Basics.
