NC groups talk mobilizing efforts against voter ID

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Groups opposed to likely legislation at the General Assembly this year requiring North Carolina citizens to show identification before voting in person already are rolling out a plan to fight it.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and American Civil Liberties Union in North Carolina and others scheduled a Legislative Building news conference Wednesday to unveil organizing efforts against voter ID proposals.

Republican legislative leaders say a bill requiring government-issued photo identification will be considered. GOP lawmakers in 2011 passed an ID bill vetoed by Democratic Gov. Beve Perdue. New Republican Gov. Pat McCrory supports photo ID to vote.

The groups say their mobilization efforts will include a public service announcement and web site. They’ll also lay out their case against photo ID at Wednesday’s news conference.
