New Photo ID Requirements

Beginning with the 2023 fall municipal elections, voters are asked to show photo ID when voting in North Carolina. If you have an unexpired North Carolina driver’s license, you’re all set — just be sure to bring it with you when you vote.

If you do not have an unexpired North Carolina driver’s license, please check the acceptable list of photo IDs on the State Board of Elections website to see if you already have an acceptable photo ID. If you don’t or if you’re not sure, WCDP recommends that you acquire a free photo ID from the Wake County Board of Elections at 1200 N. New Hope Rd. Raleigh, NC 27610.

Registered Wake County voters can visit the Wake County Board of Elections in-person Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 5:15 PM to acquire a free photo ID. No special documents are needed — you can simply provide your name, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number, and have your photo taken.
