North Carolina Photo Voter ID

Voting Rights

On April 28, 2023, the North Carolina Supreme Court reversed its previous decision in Holmes v. Moore, which found Senate Bill 824 – North Carolina’s voter photo ID law – was enacted by the General Assembly with a racially discriminatory purpose violating the state constitution. As a result, the State Board of Elections is now preparing to implement voter photo ID for the 2023 Municipal Elections, with voting for primaries beginning as early as August 11, 2023. Yet, for most of the last decade and beyond, North Carolinians were not required to present a photo ID to vote and have that vote count. 

Below are resources to help North Carolinian voters, organizations and lawmakers navigate the new rules around voter ID.
