Can I Take Time Off For Voting?
Time off to vote is subject to the employer. North Carolina state law does not require employers to grant time off to vote for employees.
Voting At The Polls On Election Day
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.
A Drivers license issued by the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles including a learner’s permit or a provisional license. These cards may be expired up for four (4) years before they are presented for voting.
