The Haywood County Board of Elections will conduct free educational seminars on voter ID requirements at 2 p.m. on Monday, June 17, at the Canton Senior Center and again on that day at 7 p.m. in the Historic Courthouse Commissioners Meeting Room in Waynesville.
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. In November 2018, North Carolina voters approved an amendment to the N.C. Constitution to require voters to present photo ID at the polls.
Information will be available on 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.
