 RALEIGH, N.C     The State Board of Elections today released a new public service announcement designed to educate voters on the 2016 voter Id requirements.

 The "Be Recognized" ads will air on local television and radio through the 2016 Election cycle, the goal is to make sure every voice is heard at the voting booth. This election voters will be asked to show a photo ID at the polls. If for some reason a voter can't get an ID, they will still be able to vote.


 Photo ID is not required to vote by mail-in absentee, and exceptions are available for voters who cannot obtain photo ID.

"No voter will be turned away from the polls because they lack acceptable photo ID," said Executive Director Kim Westbrook Strach.

 For more information about these new voting procedures and to learn more about the State Board of Elections voter outreach team, visit VoterID.nc.gov.

 The North Carolina State Board of Elections is the state agency charged with overall responsibility for administration of the elections process and campaign finance disclosure in North Carolina. The office of the State Board of Elections works in conjunction with County Board of Elections offices to ensure that elections are conducted lawfully and fairly.
