Some things go better if you’re prepared. Get ready to vote now to make your voice heard in the next critical election! 

The fight for voting rights remains as critical as ever. Politicians across the country continue to engage in voter suppression, efforts that include additional obstacles to registration, cutbacks on early voting, and strict voter identification requirements. Through litigation and advocacy, the ACLU is fighting back against attempts to curtail an essential right in our democracy, the right to vote.

Here are a few ways you can be prepared to get your vote in easily, get your vote counted, and make sure your voice is heard in North Dakota:

  • Check your voter ID status at least 30 days before the election.
  • Locate your polling place and note the hours of operation. 

  • Consider voting early or absentee if possible. If you plan to vote at the polls, go early in the day to avoid the last-minute rush.

  • Identification is required to vote in North Dakota. Check to see if your ID lists your current residential address.
