NC Campuses Urged to Update Student IDs

Fair Election Center’s Campus Vote Project, Democracy North Carolina, and Common Cause North Carolina sent the letter below updating colleges and universities about recent changes in North Carolina law that impact the ability of students to exercise their right to vote and several urgent associated deadlines. One of the forms of voter ID under a new photo ID law (SB 824) is student ID cards issued by community colleges and public and private colleges and universities in North Carolina.

The letter outlines the additional requirements institution’s must meet for their student IDs to be approved by the State Board of Elections to be used as voter ID and critical deadlines.

The State Board of Elections is supposed to produce temporary regulations to implement the approval process of student IDs as voter ID by February 1, 2019 and is supposed to approve student IDs acceptable as voter ID for the 2019 and 2020 elections on March 15, 2019.

For more information please read the letter below and if you have questions contact Campus Vote Project at info@campusvoteproject.org.
