Update Voter ID Information

Recent Development


This is a recent development in regards to Photo ID, Same-Day Registration, Out-of-Precinct Voting, and Preregistration.

On July 29, 2016, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit struck down photo ID requirements and other elections procedures enacted under SL. 2013-381 and amended by SL. 2015-103. Barring any alternative outcome on appeal, the following are no longer enforceable:
  • Photo ID requirement contained in Part 2 of Session Law 2013-381, as amended by Session Law 2015-103
  • Removal of preregistration contained in Part 12 of Session Law 2013-381
  • Elimination of same-day registration contained in Part 16 of Session Law 2013-381
  • Changes to early voting contained in Part 25 of Session Law 2013-381
  • Elimination of out-of-precinct voting contained in Part 49 of Session Law 2013-381
