Voter ID bill passes NC House


North Carolina would join 13 other states requiring voters to show a photo ID  under a bill passed Thursday by the Republican-led N.C. House.  The measure passed 66-48 along party lines, despite Democratic protests that it  would decrease turnout. Some critics invoked comparisons to Jim Crow-era voting  barriers.  NewsObserver.com
