Dare Board of Elections to conduct educational seminars on voter ID requirement

Published 10:14 am Sunday, June 23, 2019

The Dare County Board of Elections will hold two educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements on Thursday, June 27 – one at 10 a.m. and one at 5:30 p.m. – in the Board of Commissioners Meeting Room in the Dare County Administration Building, 954 Marshall C. Collins Drive in Manteo.

The seminars are free and open to the public.

Beginning in 2020, voters will be required to provide photo identification before they vote. This includes both in-person and by-mail voting, with some exceptions. In November 2018, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the N.C. Constitution to require voters to present photo ID at the polls.

Session Law 2018-144 requires each county board of elections to hold at least two voter ID seminars before September 1. Attendees also will receive information about voting options, including absentee-by-mail, One-Stop early voting and Election Day voting. Information about provisional voting, the availability of free North Carolina voter ID cards and residency requirements for voting also will be provided.
