Will I need a photo ID to vote in 2020?

Yes. Beginning in 2020, when you show up to vote, you will be asked to show photo ID. If you do not show photo ID, you may vote provisionally. Your provisional ballot will count if you bring acceptable photo ID to the County Board of Elections office before canvass, or if you sign an affidavit declaring that a reasonable impediment prevented you from showing photo ID. If you vote by mail, you must enclose a copy of your photo ID unless you sign an affidavit declaring that a reasonable impediment prevented you from enclosing a copy of your photo ID.

You can obtain a free photo ID at the Board of Elections office any time until the Friday before the election. You must complete an NC Voter ID Card Request Form in order to receive your ID.

Additional information can be found on the NC State Board of Elections web-page.
