Correspondence re: Approval of Student and Employee Identification Cards Under Session Law 2018-144
In the 2018 general election, 55 percent of voters approved a constitutional amendment requiring photo ID to vote in North Carolina.
Subsequently, the N.C. General Assembly approved Session Law 2018-144, which implements the constitutional requirement for voter photo ID.
The Photo ID requirement is not in place for any election in 2019 because of Session Law 2019-4 (signed by governor on March 14, 2019.)
