Voter ID Requirements

  • NC Voter ID Laws - VIVA
  • Help America Vote Act (HAVA)
The requirement to show a photo ID for voting and other associated laws has been struck down by a Federal court. Photo ID is not required to vote.
First-time voters, who at the time of their initial voter registration did not provide their North Carolina driver license number or the last four digits of their Social Security number, or who provided a number that could not be validated, are required to show identification when they vote.
This identification does not have to be a photo ID. The requirement for first-time voters to show identification is a requirement of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002, a federal law not unique to North Carolina. Acceptable forms of HAVA ID include:
  • A current and valid photo identification; or
  • A copy of one of the following documents that show the name and address of the voter: a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document.
  • First-time voters who are required to show HAVA ID will have been notified of this requirement by their county board of elections
