Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in North Dakota if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of North Dakota
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
  • Live in the precinct where you vote for at least 30 days prior to the election
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the overseas voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). Your state does not require an ID to be provided in order the register/request your ballot.
  • U.S. Passport
  • Valid Military ID
  • Valid North Dakota Driver's License
  • Valid Tribal ID
  • Long Term Care ID Certificate
  • Valid North Dakota Non-driver's ID
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Individuals incarcerated for a felony conviction are ineligible to vote. Voting rights are automatically restored upon release from prison, and people on parole or probation can vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in North Dakota before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their North Dakota voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ North Dakota address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in North Dakota should be able to establish residency and vote at their school address if they intend to make their college towns their residence and do not intend to return back home after school. The North Dakota Constitution requires voters to be residents of the state, and North Dakota law requires that you reside in the precinct where you wish to vote for thirty days prior to the election. A voter may only have one residence, which is “an actual fixed permanent dwelling.”

Will I need ID?

There is no voter registration in North Dakota.
    You are required to show ID to vote; or, you may instead sign an affidavit or similar document. Accepted forms of ID include:
    • Valid North Dakota Driver's License
    • Long Term Care ID Certificate
    • Valid North Dakota Non-driver's ID
    • Valid Tribal ID
