North Dakota has election for newspaper of record in some counties

From Richard Karpel, Public Notice Resource Center

I recently discovered that in North Dakota some counties hold elections to determine their official newspaper for public notice. (There were several contested newspaper elections in ND Tuesday.)

This concept is new to me and I’d love to know if it happens in any other states.

So please let me know if your state ever designates official newspapers via ballot or if you aware of any other states that do. 

I told Richard we do not have such elections in Kentucky for the official newspaper though sometimes politics will play a role for local public agencies.
