RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The start of in-person voting for North Carolina’s March 15 primary marks the first time the state’s photo identification requirement is being enforced.

Early-voting centers in all 100 counties open Thursday. Most registered voters must show one of six qualifying forms of photo ID. Those who were unable to obtain such an ID can fill out a form and provide other personal information and their ballots will still count.

Voters are being asked to choose nominees for president, U.S. Senate, governor, the legislature and other positions. Congressional primaries also are on ballots, but those choices won’t be counted because of redistricting litigation. Those elections are now June 7.

Other pending litigation also means people can register to vote and cast their first ballot during early voting, which ends March 12.
