A Senate judiciary committee today approved the Voter ID Bill, House Bill 351. A vote by the full Senate could come later today. The measure already has passed the House by a margin too small to override a potential veto by Gov. Beverly Perdue.
Perdue has not said if she would veto the legislation but her spokesman issued the following statement:
“The governor has strong concerns about making it harder for certain eligible voters to exercise their constitutional right to vote.”
