Google's simple "How to Register" system:

Hello North Dakota. Aren't you a lucky one! Because North Dakota is the only state in America that doesn't require voters to register. So it's gonna be a little bit easier for you.

There's a couple of different ways you can vote. One of the easiest is to vote absentee by mail. And any North Dakota voter can do that. All you have to do is fill out the form that's linked in the description and mail it to your county election official. Their addresses are linked below as well. There's no specific deadline to request an absentee ballot, but the sooner you do it the better. They'll start sending out ballots on September 29th. Once you apply, you'll get your ballot in the mail, and all you have to do is fill it out at your own pace, and mail it back in time to be counted on November 8th.

You can also vote early in person if you want to skip the lines on election day. There's a link in the description to find early voting hours and locations for your county.

And that's the same link you'll use if you want to find out where to go vote on November 8th. Polling place hours on election day vary by location, but they usually open between 7 am and 9 am and close between 7 pm and 9 pm. When you look up your polling location, it will tell you the exact hours you can vote.

Whether you vote early or on November 8th, you'll need to bring an ID with you. This could be a driver's license, a non-driver ID, a tribal ID, or a long term care certificate with your current address on it. If your address on your ID doesn't match where you live right now, you'll need to go get it updated before you can vote. If your address on your ID isn't current because you've moved in the last 30 days, or you're a student from a different town in North Dakota, you can still vote absentee or in person at your previous address.

You can also see everything that's going to be on the ballot ahead of time. Just use link in the description to find your sample ballot. This gives you a chance to research the candidates for your local elections ahead of time. Don't panic if you see like, 18 judge elections on there. You don't have to vote for every single item on the ballot for it to be counted. If you want to, you can even print out that sample ballot out and bring it with you to the polls, so you can remember how you want to vote. There are links in the description for everything you need to know to vote early or on election day. Thank you for voting.
