    We need to continue to push Native vote registration and access to early voting as well as make sure we vote for champions of Indian Country.  Any candidate who does not have a Native link on their Congressional/Senate page nor who has a Native American on their staff, or has a platform and a history of introducing legislation or issuing statements on Native issues has to be voted out of office or pushed to include us!

      None at all. You just show up and vote.

      If you voted in a previous election, your name will be on a list of previous voters. If you have ID or if the poll worker recognizes you (and vouches for you), you can vote immediately. If you do not have ID and you're not on the list and the poll worker doesn't recognize you, you can sign an affidavit that says you're a resident (and your vote will count -- it's a secret ballot, so they can't nullify your vote). However, fraudulently signing the affidavit is a Class A felony (one year in prison or fine of $2K or both).

      Here's a link from the ND Secretary of State's Office: North Dakota....The Only State Without Voter Registration.

      But the angle said to them, "Do not be Alfred. A sailor has been born to you"
