Renville County Auditor reminds voters
of ID requirements for upcoming election

Renville County Auditor LeAnn M. Pollman reminds voters that they will need valid identification (ID) to vote in the upcoming primary election. This state law applies to absentee/mail-in ballots as well as voting in person on Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th.

The five forms of valid identification are:
• North Dakota Driver’s License.
• North Dakota Non-driver’s ID.
• Tribal Issued ID.
• Student ID Certificate.
• Long Term Care ID Certificate.

In all cases, the ID must include the voter’s name, current residential address (no P O Boxes), and date of birth. Not all tribal-issued IDs include all the required information, so it is important to check them ahead of time.

Absentee/Mail-in voters are required to write down their ID number, or include a copy of their Student or Long Term Care ID Certificate, with their ballot application, while those voting in person on Election Day will show or provide their ID to the poll workers.

Pollman says it’s especially important for absentee/mail-in voters to act now if they do not have an up-to-date, valid form of ID. “Absentee/Mail-in voting starts 40 days before Election Day, but your ID needs to prove that you are eligible to vote, which means showing you’ve been a North Dakota citizen and resident of your voting precinct for the 30 days prior to the election,” she says. “If you’ve recently moved, even within the precinct, you need to update your records and ID.”

The North Dakota Secretary of State’s Office created a website specifically to help residents understand voting requirements. “” includes information about voting and ID, a link to update your address information, a tool for finding your polling place, viewing your ballot, and more.

Postcard applications to request a ballot for the General Election were mailed September 19th. If you did not receive one, and would like a ballot mailed out, please contact the Renville County Auditor’s office. If you requested “All Elections” on your application for the Primary, you do not need to fill out another application, a ballot will be automatically mailed to you.

Anyone with election questions is encouraged to call the County Auditor’s Office at 756-6301 for help.
