North Carolina gets strict photo voter ID

Bill: HB589 (PDF)

Sponsored by Reps. Warren, Murry, T. Moore, et al., and signed into law in 2013 by Gov. Pat McCrory, HB589 establishes the “Voter Information Verification Act” to provide photo identification before voting to protect the right of each registered voter to cast a secure vote with security measures that confirm voter identity. The law requires voters to present government-issued photo identification at the polls and reduces the early voting from 17 to 10 days. HB589 also eliminates same-day voter registration.
