Some Dakota Access Pipeline protesters have been camped out for months fighting construction. 
This far exceeds the 30 days residency needed to vote in North Dakota.
Alicia Ewen is live at the County Building for more on if those staying at the camp will be allowed to vote. 
I spoke to Al Jaeger the Secretary of State and he said that he wouldn't be able to comment directly on the camp.
But if people staying at the camp can't provide the correct identification to vote, they can sign an affidavit.
That affidavit is swearing to where they are currently living in North Dakota and that they've been there for more than 30 days. 
If that's found to be false, there will be legal ramifications. 
But like I said, this is the same process for everybody.
Really it's just business as usual. 
Now that's November 8th, but October 25th is all about early voting. 
It starts at noon in Burleigh County and will continue to the election.
