Registered North Dakota voters must show ID at the polls to vote. If you didn't bring ID to the polling place, your ballot will be set aside. In order for your ballot to be counted, you must return with ID to the polling place before the polls close on Election Day, or to the office of the administrator of elections in your area before the meeting of the canvassing board. This is typically on the sixth day after the election.
