Is this an open Primary or do I have to register as an R? If I have to register how/where/when do I do so? Can I do it online?

Your answer lies somewhere in here:


10. Persons who are eligible to vote in North Dakota and who either voted or affiliated with the Republican Party at the 2006 General Election or intend to vote or affiliate with the Republican Party at the 2008 General Election shall be entitled to vote at the 2008 Presidential Caucus.



I'm not sure what the "affiliated with" stuff is all about. Is that something you can do at the caucus?

Whoa. The polls are only open for 90 minutes.

as long as you can prove you've been a ND resident for 30 days or longer you'll be able to vote.. this is the only state that doesn't require you to register (hence the Jan 6 'deadline' you may have heard about)

I'll be at the Holiday Inn in GF

Yeah bring anything that proves you lived here for over a month. Bring an old utility bill and any ID you might have.

Try to bring your friends & family out to vote with you if you can. Promise them beer if you have to ;)
