You will need to show a form of ID in order to vote. If you do not have an acceptable form of ID, you may still cast your ballot by signing a declaration or affidavit at the polls. Acceptable forms of identification must include, name, date of birth and your street address. P.O. Boxes do not establish residency and CANNOT be accepted.

Acceptable forms of identification are:

  • ND Driver's license
  • ND Non-driver's ID card
  • Tribal government issued ID card
  • Long-term care ID certificate (provided by ND facility)

If you are voting absentee, acceptable forms of ID are:

  • Any forms of ID listed above
  • Passport or Military ID - Only for ND residents living outside the US who do not possess one of the other forms of ID
  • Attester - an applicant without acceptable form of ID may use an attester. The attester must provide his or her name, ND drivers license, non-driver's, or tribal ID number and sign the absentee/mail ballot application form to attest to the applicant's ND residency and voting eligibility.

If you don't have the acceptable form of ID, you can get one from your local Drivers License Center.
