[ARCHIVED] FREE Voter ID Seminars

The Gaston County Board of Elections will hold two educational seminars about voter photo identification requirements at the following locations:

August 13, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

Gaston College Dallas Campus, Myers Auditorium

201 Highway 321 South

Dallas, NC 28034

August 15, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

Gaston County Main Library

1555 East Garrison Boulevard

Gastonia, NC 28054

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.
