RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina legislators have wrapped up their chief work session this year after finalizing their sixth constitutional amendment for ballots this fall in a voter ID referendum.

With a Senate vote on Friday, the GOP-controlled legislature finalized a proposed constitutional amendment that would require photo IDs.

The House and Senate completed their final floor meetings by midday Friday, but not before the Senate voted for the photo identification mandate one last time. It will now be submitted to voters.

The language of the referendum question voters will face in November doesn’t provide many details. The amendment says lawmakers could pass exceptions for people who lack IDs. Lawmakers would have to pass a separate law carrying out the amendment if it’s approved.
