Raleigh.- On Tuesday, February 13th,  The North Carolina State Board of Elections began an educational campaign to ensure that the 7.5 million registered voters in the state know that they will be asked for photo identification when voting in the 2024 elections.

With the slogan “Bring it! Your ID. Your vote”, the campaign seeks to reach voters in every corner of the state with educational materials and advertisements about acceptable identifications to vote in this year’s elections in traditional media outlets and social media.

 “This slogan was chosen because it reminds voters to bring their ID when voting, and we hope it motivates North Carolinians to exercise their right to vote in this important election year,” said Karen Brinson Bell, State Board executive director in a statement.

As part of the campaign, ahead of the March 5 primary election and Nov. 5 general election, the state board of elections will send postcards with educational voter identification information to the state’s 4.9 million households.

The first postcard, which has already been mailed, includes essential information about the photo ID requirement for voters, the many acceptable forms of identification, and important dates for the March 5 primary.

It also explains how voters who do not have an acceptable form of identification can obtain one for free at their county board of elections.

The campaign will also include educational seminars throughout the state during the year.
