Voter Identification

You may use one of the following IDs, provided they are unexpired OR if expired, it has been for one year or less.

  • NC driver’s license
  • Non-driver’s ID from NC DMV (free to residents who show a birth certificate and other documents)
  • U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport Card
  • Driver’s license or non-driver ID from another state, District of Columbia or U.S. territory. Only if voter registered in North Carolina within 90 days of the election. 
  • College or university student ID 
  • State or local government or charter school employee ID 

You may use one of the following ID's, regardless of whether it is expired. 

  • Tribal Enrollment Card. Must be issued by tribe recognized by NC or federal government
  • Military or veteran ID card issued by the U.S. government
  • Public Assistance Program ID card issued by U.S. government or State of North Carolina

A voter 65 or older may use an expired form of acceptable ID if the ID was unexpired on their 65th birthday 

  • The address on your ID does not matter – the law says ID is only used to prove who you are, not where you live. (Make sure your voter registration matches your current address!)

If you do not have one of the ID's above, you may request a free NC Voter Photo ID card from your county Board of Elections. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, and the last four numbers of your Social Security number, and have your photo taken. Additional information may be found here

NOTE: If  you are unable to show photo ID (whether voting in person or by mail), you may fill out an ID Exception Form (also known as a reasonable impediment form) and vote a provisional ballot.

Absentee Voting: 

  • Directions for absentee voting can be found here.
  • Mail-in absentee voters must include a copy of a photo ID when they return their ballot OR a completed photo ID exception form.
