North Dakotans are facing an Oct. 4 deadline to ensure they’ll be able to cast a ballot in the November general election.

The state’s voter identification law, passed in 2013, requires residents to show one of five kinds of identification at the polls: a North Dakota driver’s license or nondriver’s ID, a tribal government-issued ID card, a student ID certificate from a North Dakota college or university, or a long-term care ID certificate issued by the facility where the person lives.

State residents must reside in a precinct for 30 days prior to voting, and if they have moved since they last voted, must update their address with the state Department of Transportation at least one month before an election.

For more information or to update your address online, go to vote.nd.gov.
