NEW! Photo ID IS Required to Vote

The North Carolina Supreme Court’s decision, which was issued on April 28, 2023, means that voters ARE required to show photo ID in elections in North Carolina.

Valid forms of ID can include:

  • NCSU WolfPack OneCard
  • North Carolina driver’s license
  • State/Non-operator ID from the NCDMV
  • U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport card
  • North Carolina voter photo ID card issued by a county board of elections

This video put out by the North Carolina Board of Elections goes through what’s entailed in this new requirement.
