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.
