Photo ids are now required by North Carolina. You'll need to bring a valid photo id to vote. If you do not have a valid photo, you will be given a provisional ballot and a opportunity to 'cure' your ballot to a real one by presenting your photo id at the Harnett County Board of Elections offices, 308 W Duncan, Lillington.

-Current ids that can be used are -
-North Carolina driver’s license*

Permitted exceptions to the photo ID requirement include the following: The voter has a reasonable impediment to showing photo ID (lack of transportation, lost or stolen ID, disability or illness, family responsibilities, etc.); the voter has a religious objection to being photographed; or the voter was a victim of a natural disaster within 100 days of Election Day.
When a registered voter cannot produce a photo ID, the county board of elections must count that ballot if the voter properly completes the ID Exception Form or brings an acceptable ID to their county board of elections before the county canvass.
Voters who vote by mail will be asked to include a photocopy of an acceptable ID inside the photo ID envelope that comes with their ballot. If they are unable to include a photocopy of their ID, they may complete an ID Exception Form with the absentee ballot return envelope. Photo ID is not required for military or overseas voters who vote using special absentee voting procedures that federal law makes available for such voters.
