The governor of North Carolina, Pat McCrory, signed a voter ID bill into law yesterday.
That bill makes it mandatory that one have in their possession, a photo ID in order to vote.
The new law is aimed at cracking down on and preventing voter fraud so as to preserve the standard, 1 person, 1 vote system.
Among other things, the North Carolina law requires a driver’s license, passport, veteran’s ID, tribal card starting with the 2016 elections. Student IDs are not an acceptable form of identification. The bill will also reduce early voting by a week, eliminate same-day registration, ends pre-registration for 16-and-17 year olds and provides FREE voter photo ID cards for those who don’t already have or cannot afford one of the above listed forms of acceptable ID.
Naturally, Governor McCrory is a conservative and naturally, the ACLU, the NAACP and other socialist organizations have filed suite over the new law claiming it violates everything from the constitution to the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and probably, Newton’s laws of gravity.
Over in California…
