North Dakota

North Dakotan Native Americans were victims of discriminatory voter ID laws during the 2018 elections. Native American voters were not permitted to vote with Tribal IDs. This is blatant voter discrimination and must be addressed before the 2020 elections.

2019 has been a fairly quiet one in North Dakota for voting rights. The state has had one voting rights win this year as legislation (SB 2307) passed to extend the minimum polling place hours. Legislators also introduced legislation to begin a study of implementing vote-by-mail (SB 2356). Vote-by-mail is a great way to improve voter turnout in rural states and would be a great step forward for North Dakota.
