NC General Assembly Acts to Implement Voter ID Amendment - Includes Student IDs - Bad Idea!
Contact the General Assembly. On November 27th NC SB824 was introduced to implement the recently passed Voter ID Amendment to the NC State Constitution. SB824 provides for a number of acceptable picture IDs. Many of the IDs are issued by governments based on well-defined requirements and standards. Unfortunately, student IDs may be issued by any institution based on whatever requirements and standards the schools deem appropriate, thus they are not helpful for Voter ID purposes. The result will be confusion. This likely means potential for more voter fraud and not less.
