Overview
To no one's surprise the Bush-Cheney ticket handily claimed North Dakota's three electoral votes, winning with a plurality of 79,586 votes (27.6 percentage points) and carrying 51 of 53 counties.  Pat Buchanan, who visited Fargo on Oct. 17, achieved one of his best showings nationwide in North Dakota -- a meager 2.5%.  Gore's two counties were Sioux (on the southern edge of the state; part of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation) and Rolette (on the northern edge of the state; encompases Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation).
Notes: Established political parties in North Dakota were the Republican, Democratic-NPL and Reform parties.  Third parties could establish themselves and gain access by April 14, 2000 (the sixtieth day prior to the June 13, 2000 Primary Election) as the Constitution Party did. Other candidates must run under Independent nominations, requiring submission of petitions containing signatures of 4,000 qualified North Dakota electors to the Secretary of State by Sept. 8, 2000 at 4 p.m. (the sixtieth day prior to the Nov. 7, 2000 General Election).
