Is voter ID required in North Carolina?

  • 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. If you are not a first time voter, or at the time of your initial voter registration, you provided your North Carolina driver license number or the last four digits of your social security number and that number was validated, you will not be required to show ID when you vote.
  • Also, you are not required to show your voter card. However, if you are a first-time voter and you did not provide your North Carolina driver license or the last four digits of your social security number when you completed your voter registration application, or one or both of those numbers could not be validated, then you will need to provide ID the first time that you vote

If you are required to show ID, you must provide one the following:

  • A current and valid photo identification or
  • A copy of one of the following documents that shows your name and address: a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document.
