“New NC voter ID law levies restrictions on private colleges’ ID cards”

The Chronicle:

A new voter ID law will require photo identification to cast a ballot in North Carolina.

Earlier drafts of the bill disallowed students at private colleges in the state—such as Duke—from using their college ID card to vote, but they were brought back into the bill with specified restraints.

The law was passed Dec. 19 by North Carolina’s legislature when the Republican majority overrode Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the bill. The bill was raised in the aftermath of the November midterm election, when 55 percent of North Carolina voters passed a constitutional amendment that would require voters to present some form of state-approved photo identification prior to voting.
