North Carolina Lawmaker Plans To Introduce Voter ID On First Day Of Session

Voter ID will be the “first thing on the menu for lawmakers” in North Carolina when they reconvene on January 30, according to State Rep. Frank Iler (R). With Republicans in control of both legislative chambers and the governor’s mansion, Iler’s push will “no longer face the political roadblocks of past sessions.” Voter ID had passed the Republican-controlled legislature in 2011, but was vetoed by outgoing-Gov. Bev Perdue (D). Gov.-elect Pat McCrory (R) has said he would sign the legislation if it comes to his desk.
