North Carolina lawmakers have introduced a bill that would place a constitutional amendment on the November ballot “to require voters to provide photo identification before voting.” Changing our state constitution in this way would make it more difficult for thousands of eligible North Carolina voters who lack photo ID to participate in our democracy.
Once again, lawmakers are trying to rig elections through shameful partisan tricks and turn back the clock on voting rights. The last time North Carolina legislators passed a restrictive voter ID measure, a federal court found the law targeted Black voters “with discriminatory intent” and “almost surgical precision.”
It’s time to take action. Contact your representatives right now and demand that the right to vote is protected for all.
