What to Bring to the Polls

What to Bring:

If you are voting early in person or on Election Day — you DON’T need to bring a Photo ID. However, you will want to bring proof of address, if: 

  • You are voting for the first time in your county: If you’re voting for the first time in your county, you’ll be asked to list an ID number that was written on your registration form(your Driver’s License or the last four digits of your Social Security number.) If these numbers cannot be verified or if a voter doesn’t include it, the voter will be asked to show a Photo ID or another document like a utility bill, pay stub, bank statement, or a document from a government agency that has your name and your current address listed on it.
  • You are doing Same Day Registration during the Early Voting Period: If you’re registering to vote on the same day as voting during the Early Vote period you will need to show a North Carolina DMV license or Identification Card, utility bill, bank statement, payroll stub, or document from any government agency. You may show a college ID with along with a document from your college listing your current residential address if you are a college student.

Casting a provisional ballot.

If the election officials can’t find your name on the voter rolls or if you encounter any other problem, you can cast a Provisional Ballot. If election officials are able to verify your eligibility to vote, then your vote will be counted. You’ll also be given a phone number or website to check on your Provisional Ballot and learn if it was accepted or rejected, and why.
