N.C. Board of Elections N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles RALEIGH -- In accordance with a new state law passed during the 2013 legislative session, the State of North Carolina will begin issuing no-fee voter identification cards on January 2. Beginning in 2016, North Carolina will require voters to have a valid photo ID to cast a ballot when voting in person. A list of photo ID that will be acceptable for voting is available on the State Board of Elections’ website. No-fee ID cards are available for people who have no other valid forms of photo identification. Applications for no-fee voter ID cards can be made at any North Carolina DMV driver license office. Applicants will need to present documents that verify their age and identity. Applicants will also need to provide a valid Social Security number. NCDMV has posted the requirements and documents acceptable for the Voter ID card on its website. Voter ID cards are mailed to applicants within 10 to 15 days following application. Under the leadership of Commissioner Kelly Thomas, the Division of Motor Vehicles conducted five rehearsals and training sessions over the past three weeks for all examiners and information technology personnel to ensure the examiners and IT professionals are trained in the procedures to issue voter identification to all North Carolinians seeking that form of ID.

South Asheville LPA to Remain Open During Transition

Posted 4/9/2014 4:11:21 PM

DMV seeking new contractor due to retirement   RALEIGH — While the South Asheville license plate agency is still slated to close due to the retirement of the contractor, it is working with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles to minimize service disruptions. Agency Contractor David Sharpton has postponed the agency’s closing date, previously scheduled for May 30, to help make a smoother transition to a new contractor.   The agency, located at 780 Hendersonville Road, Suite 8, will continue to operate on its current schedule for the foreseeable future so that the office may have to be closed only briefly before a new contractor is chosen.   NCDMV will continue to seek new applicants to operate an area license plate agency and is accepting applications for a new agency in south Asheville. Routinely, it takes about four months to establish a new agency.     Plate agency applications (Form MVR-93 or Form MVR-93AA) are located on the NCDMV website. Interested applicants are invited to download an application form for a motor vehicle LPA or call (919) 861-3332 with questions. The application must be returned to NCDMV no later than Friday, May 2, 2014.   LPAs offer vehicle registration services and title transactions, as well as vehicle license plate renewals, replacement tags and duplicate registrations. Currently, about 120 license plate agencies operate across North Carolina.   ***NCDOT***
