Seminars to provide information on new photo ID requirements for 2020
The Harnett County Board of Elections will hold two educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 6pm and Thursday, August 22 at 6pm at the Harnett County Commons Complex, located at 307 W Cornelius Harnett Blvd, Lillington, NC 27546.
The seminars are free and open to the public.
In November 2018, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the N.C. Constitution to require voters to present photo ID at the polls. 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.
Session Law 2018-144 requires each county board of elections to hold at least two voter ID seminars before September 1, 2019. Attendees will receive information from the N.C. State Board of Elections about voting options, including absentee-by-mail, One-Stop early voting, and Election Day voting. Information about provisional voting, the availability of free North Carolina voter ID cards, and residency requirements for voting will also be provided.
