Voter ID bill gets first look by N.C. House panel |


The public will get a chance to speak about a House proposal requiring North Carolina voters to show a photo identification card to cast a ballot.

The House Elections Committee has scheduled four hours this afternoon to discuss a newly-filed voter ID measure. Forty-five people are signed up to speak. The committee chairman hopes to vote on the bill by the end of the day.

A measure filed by Republican lawmakers would require photo identification, or the voter must cast a provisional ballot. Voters could obtain free voter identification cards affixed with photos through county election boards if they don’t have another valid ID.
