The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) is partnering with the Standing Rock Sioux next week to provide Non-Driver Photo Identification (ID) Cards that can be used for voting purposes. The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Sioux County Courthouse on May 24.

The photo ID cards will be issued for North Dakota residents who do not have a driver license or a tribal identification card. The Non-Driver Photo ID Card is free to anyone 18 years of age and older.

“These photo ID cards are a great option for those wanting to vote in the upcoming elections,” said NDDOT Drivers License Division director Brad Schaffer.

NDDOT staff will obtain photos and documents in Fort Yates. The paperwork will be processed overnight, and the Non-Driver Photo ID card will be mailed to residents within five days.

The documents needed to receive a Non-Driver Photo ID Card:

  • Must provide a certified birth certificate, and court issued name change if applicable (certified marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption order)
  • Social security card
  • Proof of ND resident physical address
