Do voters need to show photo identification in the North Carolina primaries in 2020? (The courts placed an injunction, so there is no voter ID requirement for now.)

What can the state and individual voters do between now and November to ensure the integrity of the 2020 election? (The state is already taking important steps, but for individual voters there’s more information available.)

This is the third installment in a series of conversations between Carolina Public Press elections reporter Jordan Wilkie and CPP News and Community Partnerships Manager Stephanie Carson about election integrity issues.

In this segment, Wilkie answers to these and other questions that voters may have in North Carolina in 2020.

You can strengthen independent, in-depth and investigative news for all of North Carolina

Carolina Public Press is transforming from a regionally focused nonprofit news organization to the go-to independent, in-depth and investigative news arm for North Carolina. You are critical to this transformation — and the future of investigative and public interest reporting for all North Carolinians.

Unlike many others, we aren’t owned by umbrella organizations or corporations. We are an independent and nonpartisan 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, founded and operated in North Carolina. And we haven’t put up a paywall — we believe that fact-based, context-rich watchdog journalism is a vital public service. But we need your help. Carolina Public Press’ in-depth, investigative and public interest journalism takes a lot of money, persistence and hard work to produce. We are here because we believe in and are dedicated to the future of North Carolina.

So, if you value independent, in-depth and investigative reporting in the public interest for North Carolina, please take a moment to make a tax-deductible contribution. It only takes a minute and makes a huge difference. Thank you!

  1. I have a question, for the past three election cycles, when I have voted, seemed to be a really large hassle locating my address/ballot seamed like they gave me a provincial ballot. But this year when the same thing happened, it was like, oh well here, filling in a number ( then) making a mistake writing a ? Identifying number on top of my ballot. The mistake was a red flag for me! I went oh great, now this is going to kick it back out! (Ballot) I received such a guilty look, with her quickly looking side to side. Huge vibes like she was caught, with….? Can I confirm if or whether not my ballots for the past year few cycles were, adjudicated I think is the proper term. If so I would really appreciate knowing, that my vote counted for who I Intended it to vote for (willing to travel to confirm my vote counted for me)
