To vote in North Dakota, you must have an updated I.D. Card. Here are the I.D. requirements to obtain your ballot:

I.D. Requirements

Name
Current North Dakota Residential Address
Date of Birth

Here is a list of what type of I.D. you can use at the polls:

North Dakota Driver’s license
North Dakota Nondriver’s identification card
Tribal government issued identification (including those issued by BIA for a tribe located in North Dakota, any other tribal agency or entity, or any other document that sets forth the tribal member’s name, date of birth, and current North Dakota residential address)
Long term care identification certificate (provided by North Dakota facility)

Supplemental Documentation

If an individual’s acceptable form of identification (see list above) does not include the North Dakota residential address or date of birth, or the North Dakota residential address is not current, the individual may supplement the identification with a current utility bill; a current bank statement; a check or a document issued by a federal, state, local, or tribal government (including those issued by BIA for a tribe located in North Dakota, any other tribal agency or entity, or any other document that sets forth the tribal member’s name, date of birth, and current North Dakota residential address); or a paycheck.

Set Aside Ballot Option

If an individual is not able to show a valid form of identification but asserts qualifications as an elector, the individual may mark a ballot that will be securely set aside. When the individual provides valid identification to the proper election official prior to the meeting of the canvassing board, the set aside ballot will be presented to the canvassing board for proper inclusion in the tally.
