Starting this year North Dakota residents must present an ID to vote on Election Day.
The North Dakota Secretary of State begins its seven hundred thousand dollar education campaign.
Corina Cappabianca has the story.
The North Dakota Secretary of State kicks off a 700,000 dollar Voter ID education effort.
The money will be spent on radio and tv commercials, newspaper ads and billboards to name a few.
ND Secretary of State Al Jaeger: "To make sure that everyone knows now and prepares now to exercise this most important right we have developed a very extensive education campaign."
Voters must now show one of five valid forms of ID at the polls. Or you won't be able to vote.
The valid forms of ID include a driver's license, a non-driver's license issued ID, a tribal ID, a student ID certificate or a long term care certificate.Identification must include the voter's name, current residential address and birth date.
The Burleigh County Auditor is also making efforts to inform the public about the new voting laws.
Burleigh County Auditor Kevin Glatt:"If you move within Bismarck. Even if you move within your precinct--you move a block get your driver's license updated."
Others still have concerns. AARP North Dakota's Josh Askvig worries about getting the message out to elderly voters.
ND AARP Advocacy Director Josh Askvig :"Thinking about older voters that live in rural areas that might not have a valid driver's id anymore and they don't live in a long term care facility. They still live at home. How do they get the proper ID?"
Askvig says he is pleased that the Secretary of State's education effort appears large. And hopes the ads will be frequent and often.
The June election is 85 days away. But mail-in voting starts in 45 days.
