North Dakota issues order aimed at Native voting

AP,  February 8, 2020

North Dakota doesn't have voter registration, but the state has required voters to provide ID since 2004. The state accepts a driver's license as identification or ID cards issued by the state, long-term care facilities or North Dakota's tribes. The law required that all must have a birth date and valid street address.

Voters without proper ID could may cast "set-aside" ballots until their eligibility is proven. The voter has up to six days, when election results are canvassed.

[Secretary of State Al] Jaeger said ballots marked by tribal members may now be verified by a tribe in conjunction with a local election board.
