Future Voter ID Requirements in NC
Beginning in 2016, North Carolina will require voters to show a photo identification (photo ID) when they present to vote in person. This change is a result of the Voter Information Verification Act or “VIVA.” (S.L. 2013-381). Until 2016, most voters will not be required to show any form of identification when they vote.

Absentee By-Mail Changes
Pursuant to NCGS 163-230.2, a completed written request form for an absentee ballot is valid only if it is on a form created by the State Board of Elections and signed by the voter requesting absentee ballots or that voter's near relative or verifiable legal guardian. Voters may make a request in person or by writing to the county board for the form to request an absentee ballot. These applications are also available for pick-up in the Board of Elections office.
