Elections are only three days away. County Auditors and other election workers are busy getting ready for the big day.
"Election Day is always an exciting time," said Mandi Allderings, Rhame City Auditor.
In order to vote in North Dakota, you must be:
- A U.S. citizen.
- At least 18 years old on the day of an election.
- A legal North Dakota resident.
- A resident in the precinct for 30 days preceding the election.
"On the day of the election you must provide identification," said Lee Ann Oliver, election specialist in the secretary of states office.
Acceptable forms of identification must include a street address, PO boxes do not establish residency and therefore cannot be accepted, according to the secretary of state website.
Acceptable forms of Identification include:
- Valid driver's license
- Valid State identification card
- Valid Federally Issued Identification card, (passport or agency identification card)
- Valid Tribal Government issued identification card
- Valid Student Identification card
- Valid United States Military identification card
- Utility bill dated 30 days prior to election day with name and residential address
- Change of address verification letter from the US Postal Service
If you do not have one of the forms of identification listed you still have the right to vote if an election poll worker is able to vouch for your identity and residence or if you complete a Voter's Affidavit on which you certify, under oath, your identity and that you are a resident within this precinct.
"You must vote in your precinct," said Frances M. Olson McKenzie County Auditor.
The easiest way to find your precinct is to call the county auditor or go to www.nd.gov/sos , said Oliver.
