Organ Donation in North Dakota
Every 10 minutes, a new name is added the nation's organ transplant waiting list. Since there aren't enough donated organs, an average of 18 people die per day while anxiously awaiting an organ transfer.
It doesn't cost you ―or our family―anything to become a donor. All major religions in the United States support organ and tissue donation.
North Dakota's Department of Transportation (NDDOT) makes it very easy to indicate your desire to donate your organs and tissues. Just complete and sign the donor identification section on your license application or state ID card. You'll need to be at least 18 years old, though. You can also register when you renew your license or ID card.
The state does not require a witness when signing, but strongly encourages you to notify your family of your wishes.

You may now register to be a ND organ donor online by visiting the North Dakota Donor Registry website.Other Topics in This Section
