Voter turnout for Tuesday's June primary election was about average compared to recent midterm elections going back to 2010. 
According to unofficial numbers from the Secretary of State's election website, a little over 114,000 North Dakotans went to the polls Tuesday, or about 20 percent of all eligible voters in the state. 
That's 5 percent less than the turnout in June 2016, but 3 percent higher than the turnout in June 2014. 
The total number of eligible voters this year was estimated at nearly 582,000, a figure based on the U.S. Census Bureau's annual estimate of the number of people in North Dakota 18 years of age or older. 
Below are the numbers from the Secretary of State's website for voter turnout in midterm elections going back to 2010. The 2018 figures are unofficial, meaning they could be revised: 

June 2018: 114,340 voters (20 percent of all eligible voters in the state) 

June 2016: 139,957 voters (25 percent) 

June 2014: 93,624 voters (17 percent) 

June 2012: 175,303 voters (33 percent) 

June 2010: 102,066 voters (20 percent)
