Elon poll taken from just this past February.  It's not like it doesn't have support despite harsh liberals and Moral Mondays. 

 

Slavery had majority support.  Doesn't mean it is good legislation just because it polls well.

Did you read the demographic breakdown?  If you had, you wouldn't have just made such a silly statement.

In the Survey USA poll about this it was also found 72 percent of North Carolinians agreed with the statement that "it's wrong to pass laws that make it harder for certain people to vote," and 62 percent said they'd "oppose a law that makes it harder for people of one party to vote."

 

So it just shows that there is a lack of education on this legislation

Even Speaker Tillis has admitted this isn't really about voter fraud undermining all the previous arguments about it

 

"There is some evidence of voter fraud, but that's not the primary reason for doing this," Tillis told Melvin.

 

"We call this restoring confidence in government," Tillis said. "There are a lot of people who are just concerned with the potential risk of fraud."

OMG...did an actual legitimate surveying company ask that?  LOL.  Show the law that chooses and targets certain people to make it harder for them to vote.  Remember...ID is free.

That's great.  Do you think that not extending hours for people in line makes it easier or harder for people in highly populated areas to vote?

 

Remember, long lines usually only happen in densely populated areas, aka inner city, urban areas, and bigger cities.  AKA more liberal voters

We have a rule.  As long as you are IN line prior to the polls closing, you are allowed to vote.  Pretty simple rule.  Doesn't matter how long the line is...if you were in line...you get to vote.  And furthermore that falls on the responsibility of the local boards of elections...and more than likely they are run by liberals IF it's an urban area.

Wouldn't a smart compromise here be ok we want the id thing to work for everyone and we will keep early voting going and if you are in line and the polls close you still get to vote.

I'm a beilever that despite as much as I hate the phrase perception is reality for those that are voting and you are in office you need to do all you can to remove all doubt.

I cannot believe the rationale I am hearing.

How are we trying to restrict votes when we should be doing everything we can to get people to vote.

Speaking in terms of where teeray is and g5.

Why not allow online voting and make sure a high level of security is in place.

You can't compromise when your objective is to use the power you have at the moment to try and keep it into the future.

 

I can't believe 6 pages of this crap from G5 and crew, with no evidence of why all this is necessary.

 

Oh wait, that's been true for the past few years here.
