NAACP urges veto of Voter ID Constitutional Amendment

RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP urged North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper, to veto Senate Bill 824 “Implementation of Voter ID Constitutional Amendment.”

The letter states that SB 824 is the product of a rushed process by a lame-duck General Assembly that both has been found to be unconstitutionally-constituted by the federal courts and has been voted out of office by the people of North Carolina.

Further, the letter says that “the right to vote is sacred, and the last thing this body should be doing is attempting to enact a photo voter ID law that will infringe upon it.”
