how do i testify?

The basics of testifying during the 2021 ND legislative session are outlined in:

How to Provide Virtual Testimony NDU

How to Give Compelling Testimony

If you wish to submit either written or oral testimony, you will need to locate the bill on the Committee Hearing Schedule and click “Submit Testimony” on the right hand side. This page will give you the deadline for submitting testimony (typically one hour before the start of the hearing) as well as directions on how to submit your testimony. If you would like to give oral testimony, you must also submit the written version. The committee chairs can choose to set a limit on the amount of oral testimony any bill can receive, so make sure to reserve your spot in the queue as soon as possible after the schedules are released on Thursdays. Legislative Council staff have put together a great video to walk you through the process: https://www.legis.nd.gov/written-and-oral-testimony-submission.

Legislative Council has created a How to Testify brochure to outline the basics of the process.
