To be a qualified voter in North Dakota you need to meet the following qualifications:
- Must be a citizen of the United States
- Must be at least eighteen (18) years old
- Must be a resident of North Dakota
- Must have resided in the precinct at least thirty (30) days preceding any election
If a resident who otherwise meets the qualifications for voting in North Dakota moves from one precinct to another within thirty (30) days preceding any election, they are still a qualified elector of the precinct they moved from.
North Dakota does not have voter registration, however, when you show up at the polls, state law requires that the poll clerk asks you to provide identification to verify your eligibility to vote in that precinct. If you don't have an acceptable form of identification , you may be challenged and be required to complete a Voter Affidavit certifying that you meet the qualifications to vote in that precinct.
Please visit the North Dakota Secretary of State's website for more information about voting.
