If You Do Not Have A Photo ID
All registered voters will be allowed to vote with or without a photo ID card.
When voting in person, you will be asked to present a valid photo identification card. If you do not show photo ID, you may vote provisionally. Your provisional ballot will count if you bring acceptable photo ID to your 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 do not have a valid photo ID card, you may obtain one from your county board of elections free of charge by filling out a North Carolina Voter Identification Card Request Form (pdf). You can obtain a free photo ID at your county board of elections office any time until the Friday before the election.
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 photo ID.
North Carolina State Board of Elections has all the information you will need on Voter Photo Identification requirements. Also, look at the State Voter ID Infosheet (pdf) for quick reference information.
