NC: Bad Bill of the Week: Ending Voter ID Before it Began?

 

North Carolina is the first state to lose a voter photo ID case and the Republicans in the state legislature were the deciding factor.

Late last week, out of nowhere, Republicans in the state Senate and House passed a bill that effectively gutted North Carolina’s never-implemented voter photo ID legislation.

The Voter Information Verification Act (VIVA), the landmark election reform legislation passed in 2013, included a voter photo ID provision that was to be implemented in 2016.

House Bill 836 is now on its way to Gov. Pat McCrory for his signature.

    1. Yes and completely hopeless considering this action as the photo ID would benefit the R's. Damn if I know.
