Voter ID: A preview
House lawmakers have scheduled a four-hour committee meeting Tuesday on voter ID.Posted — Updated
Tuesday's House Elections meeting should be worth watching. It's scheduled to be four hours long – public comment from 2 to 4 p.m., and then committee debate from 4 to 6 p.m. (I'm told Tuesday's House session will be moved back to 1 p.m. to avoid a conflict.)
What will they be debating? No measure has been filed yet, but I'm told a bill has been drafted and will likely be rolled out Tuesday, either before or at the hearing. It’s expected to include a requirement for state-issued photo ID.
The meeting will probably be standing room only in Room 643. The Civitas Institute, which backs the voter ID requirement, is busing people in from Wilmington and Greensboro. Common Cause NC, which opposes the requirement, is bringing in college students to speak against it.
