PHOTO ID PUBLIC INFORMATION SESSIONS

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.

As part of this education process under NC Session Law 2018-144, each county board of elections must hold at least two voter ID seminars before September 1, 2019. Besides voter photo IDs, the seminar will cover the types of voting options (absentee-by-mail, one-stop early voting, Election Day voting, and provisional voting), the availability of free North Carolina voter ID cards for those without other options, and residency requirements for voting.

The Chatham County Board of Elections has scheduled two seminars on May 20, 2019, from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Chatham County Agricultural & Conference Center, 1192 US 64 W Bus, Pittsboro, NC 27312.
