Voter ID

“The proposal in H.B. 1092 would amend the Constitution of North Carolina to require that every person voting in person present photo ID before voting in the manner prescribed by law. Approving voter ID would place North Carolina in the mainstream with 34 other states that require some form of voter ID. Currently North Carolina is the only state in the Southeast not to require some form of voter ID. Under current law, North Carolina voters merely state a name and corresponding address for election officials to verify their identity. Public polling consistently shows a strong majority of North Carolinians – and the American people – support voter ID as a common sense measure to strengthen election security. We want to make sure that everyone who is eligible to vote is able to cast their vote once, and that those votes cumulatively determine who wins and loses our elections. We want extraordinary turnout, because participation is key to confidence in, and legitimacy of, our elections.” – Rep. Jordan
