Photo ID Required for Voting


On Friday, April 28, 2023, the North Carolina Supreme Court, reversed the injunction against implementation of the Photo ID legislation. As a result of this ruling, voters will be required to show Photo ID for voting beginning with the 2023 Municipal Town Elections. Precinct Officials will be looking for the facial resemblance with you and your photo.

To prepare for this change, The Bertie County Board of Elections will provide a Voter Education Seminar on the Photo ID Law. The seminar will be scheduled once all guidance materials are received from the NC State Board of Elections.

Here is the Voter Photo ID Flyer for reference.

Acceptable Photo IDs include the following that is Unexpired or Expired for one year or less:

  • North Carolina driver’s license
  • State ID from the NCDMV (also called “non-operator ID”)
  • Driver’s license or non-driver ID from another state, District of Columbia or U.S. territory (only if voter registered in North Carolina within 90 days of the election)
  • U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport card
  • North Carolina voter photo ID card issued by a county board of elections (available soon)
  • College or university student ID approved by the State Board of Elections
  • State or local government or charter school employee ID approved by the State Board of Elections
  • Note: A voter 65 or older may use an expired form of acceptable ID if the ID was unexpired on their 65th birthday.
    Additional acceptable Photo IDs also include any of the following listed below. These IDs are acceptable regardless of whether the ID contains an expiration or issuance date:

  • Military or veterans ID card issued by the U.S. government.
  • Tribal enrollment card issued by a tribe recognized by the State or federal government.
  • ID card issued by an agency of the U.S. government or the State of North Carolina for a public assistance program.
  • I must emphasize that NO VOTER will be turned away at the polls. If you are unable to present a Photo ID, you will have to complete a Photo ID Exception Form to indicate the reason you are unable to provide your Photo ID.
