Voters will not be required to show a photo ID. From Wake Board of Elections: “Voters will not be required to show photo ID for the March 3, 2020 primary election. In a December 31, 2019 order, a federal district court blocked North Carolina’s voter photo ID requirement from taking effect. The injunction will remain in place until further order of the court.”

Voters with questions or concerns can also call the National Election Protection hotline at 1-888-OUR-VOTE (888-687-8683). The hotline is available during early voting and on Election Day.
