Board of Elections to host educational seminar

The Granville County Board of Elections will hold an educational seminar about voter photo identification requirements at 2 p.m. and at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18. The seminar will be held at the Granville County Expo and Convention Center, 4185 US Highway 15 South in Oxford.


This seminar is free and open to the public.


Beginning in 2020, voters will be required to provide photo identification before casting a ballot. This includes both in-person and by-mail voting, with some exceptions. In November of 2018, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the N.C. Constitution to require voters to present photo ID at the polls.


Session Law 2018-144 requires each county Board of Elections to hold at least two (2) voter ID seminars before Sept. 1, 2019. Attendees will also receive information 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.
