According to the North Carolina State Board of Elections website, voters who vote in person, whether at one-stop early voting site or their polling place, may present photo ID before voting, but will not be required to do so.  These voters will be notified of photo ID requirements that will go into full effect beginning in 2016, due to the Voter Information Verification Act.
