About North Dakota Open Public Records
The right of the public to have access to North Dakota state government records and information is guaranteed by the North Dakota Open Records Law. To assist the public with a better understanding of this law, a Citizen's Guide to North Dakota's Open Meetings and Records Law has been posted on the North Dakota Attorney General's website. The information detailed in this guide describes what public records are considered to be, and how and where to request public records. The Attorney General's website also contains specific contact information for assistance in obtaining open records. North Dakota was granted statehood on November 2, 1889. The state population is 672,591, making it the third least populous state in the union. Fargo is the city with the largest population, but the state capital is in Bismarck. While there are a large number of American Indians who call North Dakota home, they represent only 5% of the almost all white population. There are 53 counties, 159 cities, and various unincorporated communities. Agriculture is North Dakota's largest industry. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is the state's central repository of criminal history information; however, requests for criminal background checks should be made through the Attorney General's office.

  • Where can I find, in North Dakota, access to a business?
    The North Dakota Secretary of State has a free business search. It also shows companies that have been inactive for a year or less. You can search the database by the entity's name or owner's name. These are recorded/information of businesses registered with this department; other permits or licenses are not part of the search results.
  • Can the public get arrest records from the North Dakota Attorney General's criminal record check?
    Depends on whether you are planning on turning in fingerprints. Otherwise, you will get a name based search, which can include people which share the same name. Certain employers ask for a fingerprint based search as a pre-hire requirement.
  • Where can I find, in North Dakota, access to the results of a will that went through probate?
    In probate, wills are generally part of the court record and available to the public, similar to other court files, except you may need to request it from a separate probate clerk. While the person is still alive, wills are not public records; they are considered private. Each jurisdiction has its process, which can differ from one to another. The North Dakota Supreme court offers a public webpage that summarizes ND's probate process and familiarity with the administration of an estate.
