Forsyth County Board of Elections to Conduct Educational Seminar on Voter ID Requirement
The Forsyth County Board of Elections will hold educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 31 and Thursday, August 1, at the Forsyth County Board of Elections office, 201 N. Chestnut Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101.
The seminars are free and open to the public.
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.
Session Law 2018-144 requires each county board of elections to hold at least two voter ID seminars before September 1, 2019. 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.
The Forsyth County Board of Elections will also be having an open house, July 31, 2019 from 3 to 6 p.m. to kick off the 2019 Election season. Come meet the staff and let us show you what goes on before, during and after an election. Learn about Voter Registration, Absentee Voting, Voting Machine – Ballot Tabulation and Ballot Integrity, How to form a Committee and become a Candidate, being a Poll worker and Precinct Management, and Election Security and Safeguards.
