NC House budget
The State Board of Elections and county election boards worked tirelessly during the last election to ensure it was free and fair. Instead of addressing the needs of these bipartisan groups, the N.C. House budget proposal seeks to limit their ability to fairly administer elections and it provides unnecessary funding for Photo ID, which cannot be applied in N.C. elections.
This follows a disturbing national trend of partisan politicians granting themselves the ability to intervene in elections. The League of Women Voters of Wake County opposes any legislation that attempts to weaken our election system.
We call upon N.C. legislators to remove all voting provisions from the budget. The budget bill should not be a vehicle to achieve a partisan policy agenda.
