Voter Photo ID Requirement
Voters will be asked to show photo ID when voting in North Carolina.
Watch a short video to learn all about the new voter photo ID requirement here:
For most voters, they will simply show their driver’s license. But there are many other acceptable photo IDs.
If a voter does not have an acceptable photo ID, they can get one for free from the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV). Find more information under “No-Fee ID Cards” at State IDs | NCDMV. Voters can also get free ID from their county board of elections.
All voters will be allowed to vote with or without a photo ID. If a voter cannot show photo ID when voting in person, they can still vote by filling out an ID Exception Form. For absentee-by-mail voters, if they are unable to include a copy of their photo ID in their ballot return envelope, they can also fill out an ID Exception Form with their ballot. Find more information at this link: ID Exceptions.
