BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The American Civil Liberties Union and a Fargo-based-nonprofit want North Dakota's voter identification laws expanded to allow more forms of ID.

The ACLU and the Freedom Resource Center for Independent Living say in a letter to Secretary of State Al Jaeger that North Dakota's current law could disenfranchise disabled and Native American voters.

Jaeger says his office is reviewing the issue.

North Dakota requires voters to bring to the polls ID showing their current address and birthdate. The acceptable forms of ID are a North Dakota driver's license, a non-driver's license, a tribal ID, student ID and a long-term care ID certificate.

The groups want acceptable identification to include such things as passports, game and fish licenses, concealed weapon permits and utility bills.
