Welcome to the Division of Vital Records

The Division of Vital Records provides registration and certification of the vital events that occur in North Dakota.  These events include births, deaths, fetal deaths, marriages and divorces.  We also provide statistical information on a wide range of categories relating to these events.

It is our goal to provide our customers with the most complete vital statistics information, in a prompt and reliable manner.  If you have any questions or suggestions on how we can make our process more efficient, please email us at vitalrec@nd.gov.
