OXFORD — The Granville County Board of Elections will hold educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18 at the Granville County Expo and Convention Center.

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 that requires 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 Sept. 1. 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 Granville County Expo and Convention Center is located at 4185 U.S. Highway 15 S., Oxford.
