Letters to the Editor: Pleased to Have Day in Court

The League of Women Voters of NC is pleased that we will have our day in state court in July to challenge the constitutionality of the voter ID requirement.

We will argue that the voter ID requirement, which goes into effect in 2016, violates the North Carolina Constitution. The requirements to vote are clearly stated in our constitution, and furthermore, the constitution states that no other requirements to vote may be imposed on our citizens. In addition, the voter ID requirement is an unconstitutional restriction on the right to vote and creates impermissible classes of voters, those with valid ID and those who, while legally registered to vote, do not have valid ID.
