Ignoring 62% of voters, North Carolina Republicans Overhaul Elections Board with Senate Bill 749

North Carolina Republicans recently sent Senate Bill 749 to Democratic Governor Roy Cooper’s desk; the bill passed by a 26-17 vote, entirely along party lines. Though Governor Cooper has vowed to veto the bill, North Carolina’s Republican legislators recently gained a veto-proof supermajority practically guaranteeing the bill will become law. The bill will potentially change election administration in the state dramatically, and opponents of the bill are concerned it may lead to cuts in early voting locations and the time period where voters can cast their ballot early.
