NORTH CAROLINA Voter ID Information

Voter ID rules are changing in North Carolina in 2019. VoteRiders is here to help you understand the requirements, obtain your North Carolina voter ID, and vote with confidence!

In 2018, NC voters passed a constitutional amendment authorizing the state legislature to implement a voter ID requirement. The exact details of what types of ID will be valid for voting under the new law, for both in-person voting and absentee ballots, have yet to be agreed and implemented. We will update this page as new legislation is passed and any court decisions are issued. For questions or help obtaining NC ID to vote, call VoteRiders’ Voter ID Helpline: 844-338-8743.

Stay tuned for the 2019 update of our North Carolina Voter ID Information card! 

While the following voter photo IDs appear in the new North Carolina law, they will not be required until the State Board of Elections publishes rules that must accompany implementation.
