As a college student, what requirements must I meet to vote in Burleigh County?
College students need to meet the four requirements that all voters must meet:

  • 18 years of age or older; 
  • United States citizen; 
  • North Dakota resident;
  • and have lived in their precinct for at least 30 days before the election.

Students that are from North Dakota and currently reside in Burleigh County usually meet the four requirements but often elect to vote by absentee in their home county because they want to maintain that as their residence. Students maintaining their North Dakota residency while attending school out-of-state are eligible to vote by absentee ballot using their North Dakota address. Students that are residents of Minnesota or other states should request an absentee ballot from the state they maintain as their residence.
