We're livestreaming the House Elections committee meeting today on House Bill 351, the Voter ID bill. 

The new version would require a photo ID, an issue that's reportedly been a source of contention within the House Republican caucus. But in the latest version of the measure, an expired driver's license would be acceptable ID, even if the address hasn't been updated. 

Here's the version they'll be debating today. To watch the meeting, go to wral.com and look for the link at the top of the homepage.
