Excerpt: 

Primary ballots in 20 North Carolina counties still are being examined nearly two months after the March 15 election vote to ensure a photo identification law enforced for the first time and other voting laws were implemented correctly.

State election officials said such audits are designed to promote statewide uniformity by county election officials and local precinct workers on how provisional ballots will be counted or handled in advance of the fall election. A smaller review occurred after the May 2014 primary. ...

Nearly 2,300 people who didn't present one of six forms of qualifying IDs required under the new voter ID mandate also cast provisional ballots. The ballots usually counted when the voter also filled out a form saying they faced obstacles to obtaining an ID. But some didn't. Strach said some counties are being asked to review those forms again to make sure their ballots weren't wrongly denied.

Excerpt: 

The legislation passed Tuesday would still allow people to cast ballots using a non-photo ID. Those voters would be required to sign a statement attesting to their identity under penalty of perjury. The statement would also inform the voters that they are required to get a government-issued photo ID and that the state will cover the cost of obtaining that ID, as well as the cost of gathering underlying documents needed to get it, such as a birth certificate.

Additionally, a local election authority would be permitted to take a photo of any voter who doesn’t present a photo ID, which would become part of that individual’s voter registration file. ...

A national study of the issue found only 10 alleged cases of in-person voter impersonation in the United States since 2000.
