The 2018 election is behind us, and 2020 will be here before we know it. There are two US Congressional special elections on Sept 10, 2019, followed in many places by municipal elections in Oct and Nov. NO PHOTO ID IS NEEDED TO VOTE IN 2019!
In 2018, NC voters approved a constitutional amendment to require a photo ID to vote, without knowing what forms of photo ID would be deemed acceptable by the NC General Assembly (NCGA). The voter photo ID bill the NCGA passed in December was vetoed by Gov Cooper; they overrode his veto. Two lawsuits were filed within a day of their override vote - one at the state level, one at the federal.
While the lawsuits play out, it appears that voter photo ID will be enforced for the 2020 elections. Get Out the Vote groups are planning to focus on voter education around the new photo ID requirements. Check Democracy NC, You Can Vote, and the NC State Board of Elections for information, training and outreach updates regarding voter photo ID, and stay tuned to the Stamp NC Blue blog! REAL ID is NOT required to vote in 2020!
