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.)
The State and County Boards of Elections held educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements, which take effect in 2020. The seminars were free and open to the public.
