North Dakota recently joined the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' (USCIS) RIDE program (Records and Information from DMV's for E-Verify). RIDE is a USCIS initiative that links the E-Verify program with state driver's license databases for identification verification purposes. When an employee provides a driver's license or state identification to an E-Verify employer for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, purposes, the individual's information is verified against state driver's license databases. Other states that currently participate in the RIDE program include: Mississippi, Florida, Idaho, Iowa and Nebraska.
