The Hyde County Board of Elections will host two seminars on the new Voter ID requirement voters approved last year as an amendment to the North Carolina Constitution.
The first seminar will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, in the Ocracoke Community Center, and the second one will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, in the Hyde County Government Center’s Multipurpose Room and also will be teleconferenced to the Ocracoke Community Center.
Beginning in 2020, voters will be required to provide photo identification before they vote. This includes both in-person and by-mail voting, with some exceptions.
Attendees also will 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 also will be provided. For more information, call the Elections Office at 252-926-4194.
