The Chatham County Board of Elections advises voters of new statewide voter photo identification (ID) requirements that will take effect with the 2020 elections. Beginning in 2020, voters will be required to provide photo identification before they vote.This includes both in-person and by-mail voting, with some exceptions. In November 2018, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the N.C. Constitution requiring voters to present photo ID at the polls.  


The North Carolina Board of Elections will keep the most updated information on voter identification requirements, including types of photo IDs that will be accepted for voting and specific information about each of these. Visit their webpage here:
