Voters MUST have a valid ID to vote in the June Primary!

 

Bowman County Auditor, Sandra Tivis, reminds North Dakota voters must have a valid ID to vote in the June Primary Election. New residents of the state must obtain their North Dakota ID by May 10.

 

State law requires that voters must live in a precinct 30 days prior to voting in any election. This law applies whether voting by mail or in person.


 

The five forms of identification valid for voting are:

• North Dakota Driver’s License

• North Dakota Non-driver’s ID

• Tribal Issued ID

• Student ID Certificate

• Long Term Care ID Certificate

 

In all cases, the ID must include the voter’s name, residential address (no PO Boxes) and date of birth. Not all tribal-issued IDs include all the required information, so it is important to check them ahead of time.
