    NORTH CAROLINA - No-fee voter identification cards will be issued by North Carolina starting Thursday.

    A list of photo IDs 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's 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.
