WHAT IF MY ID ISN’T UPDATED BEFORE ELECTION DAY?
- If you are unable to update your identification to reflect your U.S. citizenship status prior to Election Day, you still have the right to vote as a North Dakota resident. If you don’t get permanent or temporary removed from your driver’s license or non-driver ID before voting:
- You can vote by set-aside ballot during early vote or on Election Day.
- This means you cast your ballot and it is placed in an envelope to be presented to the County Canvassing Board for review.
- Within 13 days after the election, you must update your driver’s license or non-driver ID with the North Dakota Department of Transportation, before the County Canvassing Board meets.
- Next, you must present your updated driver’s license or non-driver ID to the county auditor, in person or electronically, and your ballot will be counted. You will be provided information about this process when voting a set-aside ballot.
