The furor over the N.C. voter’s bill is at once not as bad as it appears and as bad as it seems. The identification part is reasonable to me in that the state will have a uniform method of identifying  legal residents as far as voting and accessing State resources.  Unfortunately there are other elements within the bill that are suspect.

I have excerpted a portion of the bill below. The entire bill is available on YouTube and multiple other sources.

“The bill will require voters to show photo identification — a driver’s license, passport, veteran’s ID, tribal card — beginning in the 2016 elections. Student IDs are not an acceptable form of identification. The bill also reduces early voting by a week, eliminates same-day registration, ends pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds and a student civics program, kills an annual state-sponsored voter registration drive and lessens the amount of public reporting required for so-called dark money groups, also known as 501(c)(4)s.

The bill does provide for a “free ID” to be offered at DMVs, though the state estimates that between 203,351 and 318,643 voters registered in North Carolina lack ID, and that providing them with one would cost $834,200 in 2013 and 2014, and $24,100 every year after”
