BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Bladen County Board of Elections is spreading the word about a new North Carolina voting law which requires voters to vote in their designated precinct on Election Day.

"We want people to know what they are doing on Election Day," said Board of Elections Chairman Ray Britt. "You have to stay within your precinct so we can get everything done we are supposed to do."

Election staff said they're working hard to inform voters of future changes in 2016. Voters will be required to bring a photo ID to vote and voting stations are expected to get new equipment.

Voting staff will re-direct voters if they are at the incorrect precinct but will not deny your right to vote. If you vote at the incorrect precinct the vote will be reviewed by the Board of Elections and dismissed if necessary but they are working to make voting convenient for everyone in Bladen County.

"It's a privilege to have that opportunity and we want to make sure everyone in Bladen County has the opportunity to vote."

Precinct information is available by calling the Bladen County Board of Elections. To look up the precinct information for your area, information is available on the NC Board of Election website.
