This controversial law, which requires ballot-casting North Carolinians to present photo ID, goes into effect just in time for the federal elections of 2016, and could render 200,000 citizens ineligible to vote. In order to identify at-risk voters in New Hanover County, the Board of Elections will be screening for IDs throughout this year.</p> Tue, 14 Jan 2014 10:30:00 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 48933 at http://whqr.org New Hanover County Uses This Year's Elections to Prep For Upcoming Voter ID Changes New Hanover County Plans for Upcoming Municipal Elections http://whqr.org/post/new-hanover-county-plans-upcoming-municipal-elections <p>The New Hanover County Board of Elections convened Thursday to plan for the 2013 Municipal Elections.
