I support voter ID. It's time to stop illegal voting. Ten days is plenty of time to get to the polls.


You should see what they've done in Boone, Watauga County!
Someone needs to take legal action.

Restricted hours, IDs, voting days, ages (pre-reg), same-day registration are all about the same goal: limited votes for the marginalized: students, elderly, disabled, time-limited. Guess the stats on their political inclination.

Details prove the point:
Why bar official student ID's?
Why no new validation for absentee (mostly GOP) voters, where fraud is MOST likely?

The same authors wanted to PENALIZE parents for their kids voting where they attend school (an established constitutional right).


Um, I believe that most of the absentee fraud that has been proven has been people voting for dems, like the lady in Ohio who was just sent to the slammer for voting 6 times.

State university IDs count, voting IDs are free, and the Supreme Court has already ruled 6-3 that photo ID requirements are legal.

Having 10 days to vote is really convenient when you consider most states do not have any early voting.


This is just not true! Project 21 Co-Chairman Cherylyn Harley LeBon, a former senior counsel with the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. “Despite the fact that voter ID is supported by nearly 70 percent of North Carolinians, it would appear that Holder and liberal activist groups — who have already filed lawsuits against the protections — feel they have the ability to circumvent the Supreme Court’s recent Shelby County decision by resurrecting the Section 4 preclearance formula after the Court struck down. Oh, and she's BLACK.


Terry your info is a year out of date. The idea of voter id was popular with NC voters but the right kept loading it up with more unpopular aspects such that the bill as a whole is now quite unpopular.

and too, how did the Elon University Poll get it so wrong...this law is patterned after the Georgia voter ID law..which passed court muster...

Something doesn't smell right..
