  • Key considerations when conducting a voter registration drive.

These seminars will also include information about the photo identification requirements for voting. They will be conducted upon request in person anywhere in North Carolina or online.

State Board staff also provide free seminars about the voter photo ID requirement and about accessibility in voting. Since late April, State Board staff have conducted 29 seminars about the photo ID requirement and seven seminars about accessibility.
