CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Every vote counts, but a Mecklenburg County transgender voter says she was almost denied that right. She says she was able to cast a ballot last November after first being made to feel like she was “on trial.”

“Voting is very important to me,” said a woman who is listed in court records as 'Jane Doe.' FOX 46 agreed to withhold her identity, at her request, because not everyone she knows is aware she is transgender.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Mecklenburg County and State Board of Elections have been hit with a lawsuit after a woman, who is transgender, says she was forced to show her photo identification card in order to vote.

In North Carolina, voters are currently not required to show photo ID when casting their ballots, But this woman claims election officials asked her to provide one anyways.

A transgender woman sued North Carolina and Mecklenburg County election officials Wednesday, claiming she was denied equal protection under state law and endured emotional stress when a Cornelius elections official questioned her identity last November.

The voter, identified as Jane Doe in the lawsuit, said a chief precinct judge demanded to see her identification, which state law doesn’t currently require for voting.
