After losing their supermajorities in the House and Senate on Election Day, Republican lawmakers are holding a “lame duck” session on November 27, the week after Thanksgiving, to pass a voter ID law while Republicans still have their veto-proof majority. This is undemocratic and goes against the NCGOP’s entire reasoning for putting voter ID on the ballot in the first place.
The people have spoken. The outgoing Republican supermajority should listen to them by letting the newly-elected legislature take up enabling legislation for voter ID in January, instead of ramming it through during a lame duck session.
Join NC NAACP, Democracy NC, NCVCE, Indivisible Guilford Co, RISE Together Piedmont Triad, and Progress NC on the corner of Market and Eugene streets in downtown Greensboro on Tuesday, November 20th at 10:30 am to demand that the lame duck lawmakers go home.
