What is on my sample ballot? Not sure if you are registered or your address that’s on file? Click the link below to find out:
What ID do you need to bring to the ballots?
Good question because it’s not really listed in a lot of places. In North Carolina, you can present an ID to vote, but you can also present some other forms as well. In our experience in voting, most of the time, you just need to show up and tell them your name and party affiliation.
According to the Wake County Board of Elections, “You are not required to show your voter card when you vote and as long as you provided a valid identification number on your voter registration application, you will not be required to show ID before voting.”
But bring one of the forms of ID below just in case.
You may be required to show ID the first time you vote in Wake County if you registered by mail and did not provide a valid identification number. Acceptable ID includes the following:
–A current and valid photo ID OR
–A current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck, or a government document that shows your name and address as it appears on your voter registration application.
When are the polls open?
On Election Day, the polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m EST. ::
