We will get all the rich people in NC to vote so we can keep our tax breaks and that will fix this. We tried the easy way but we will win when all the rich folks turn out to vote here in NC.

The voter ID part is a little confusing.

The voter ID thing doesn't take affect until 2016. You can bet your patootie that poverty pimps and libturd agitators will be suing up a storm against that provision as well.

The features that will still come into play in November include the reduction of early voting days from 17 to 10; an expansion of the practice of challenging the voter eligibility of people standing in line at polling stations; restrictions on voter registration drives for under-18s; and a soft rollout for the voter identification requirement that will come into effect in 2016. In all these aspects, the appeals court found that a preliminary injunction was not merited.

I think most people already have a valid ID.

I like the ID law as long as the state pays for the ID. I don't see why we have to pay for a state ID if it's required by the state.

I don't understand why people can't register before election day and also why they do not know the correct location to vote. People should have some personal responsibility. At least some the law still stands such as ID.

In this article, the new precinct that Watauga wanted with 9300 voters had only 19 parking spaces. How do you think that would have gone on election day?

I may be wrong, but I don't think the voter ID part is active until 2016.

It doesn't say anything about having an I.D. Will that still be required?
