    Individuals who miss the registration deadline may register in person and then vote at one-stop voting sites in the person's county of residence during the one-stop absentee voting period.

    Is voter ID required in North Carolina?

    • For most voters, no ID is required. 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.

    Note, the ID that you present does not necessarily need to be a photo ID. Also, it is intended to show proof of person and not proof of residence; thus, there is no requirement that your driver license have your current address. If you will be presenting a form of non-photo ID, such as a utility bill or bank statement, then your ID will need to show your current name and address. A 'current' document would be any document that is dated within six months of the date that you are presenting it to an election official.
