In November 2018, we the people of North Carolina voted to approve a constitutional amendment to require Voter ID. The General Assembly then passed a bill to create a framework for Voter ID in North Carolina elections.
While 34 states already have a voter ID law, North Carolina’s is one of the most lenient in the nation. It ensures individuals aren’t turned away who don’t have a qualifying ID by allowing anyone to vote if they sign an affidavit citing a reasonable impediment to obtaining an ID.
Despite this, today we were told that the will of the people doesn’t matter when it opposes radical left-wing ideology. U.S. District Judge Loretta Biggs, a President Obama appointee, blocked North Carolina from using the new Voter ID law. This judge refused to allow state lawmakers to defend their own legislation. The only parties allowed by the judge to defend voter ID in North Carolina are Democratic Governor Cooper’s state board of elections, and Democratic Attorney General, John Stein. Both Cooper and Stein are opponents of Voter ID in North Carolina.
Unless the judge’s decision to block Voter ID is appealed immediately, North Carolinians may be forced to go through yet another election without Voter ID.
Call Governor Roy Cooper and Attorney General Josh Stein TODAY and tell them to appeal the judge’s ruling!
