Tony Oberschall: Let protesters help those without IDs

August 19, 2013 

Help for ID-less

Regarding your Aug. 19 editorial: The “common sense” sentence for the “Moral Monday” protesters arrested at the N.C. legislature should be 30 hours of community service. They should set up information booths in public places or canvass door to door in neighborhoods explaining the new N.C. voter ID law, provide guidance on how to get state-approved photo identification and assist registration of new voters.

Such community service accords with the “fairness” Gov. Pat McCrory promised for elections in our state.
