North Dakota Public Records
The North Dakota State Records website provides every person with the right to gather, obtain, and examine public records. This ensures North Dakotans with access to this information in accordance with the North Dakota Open Records Statute. This act states that all government information and records are available to the public.
This website ensures that all members of the general public have the right to access North Dakota state public records, without requiring a party to specify a reason for needing the information, or revealing any personal information providing that said record is not confidential by law or court order.
North Dakota State Records contains criminal records, court records, vital records, and over 7 million transparent public records.
North Dakota public records were created from as far back as the year 1876 and usually include information from all 53 counties and census areas, thereby ensuring North Dakota abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all. Further, as digitization has become the standard for public records over the last 30 years, these records are increasingly available online through third party and governmental websites.
