In his Aug. 28 letter “Disagreements aren’t conspiracies,” NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse said, “We fully support every legal voter being able to cast a ballot.”
In the very long (and very unconstitutional) omnibus “voter ID” bill that the GOP legislature passed and Gov. Pat McCrory signed, every single provision made it harder, not easier, for legal voters to cast a legal ballot. Every. Single. One.
They want to make the public discussion all about ID, but the bill also included provisions reducing voting days and hours, provisions making it harder and more inconvenient for new voters to register, provisions making it harder for voters to cast provisional ballots.
Heck, in a move aimed explicitly at making Election Day lines longer and more inconvenient, they even banned the favorite voting method of the majority of citizens in both parties – straight ticket voting.
Never miss a local story.
Out of the dozens of changes contained in this election law, there is not one single provision – not one – aimed at making it easier for legal voters to cast legal ballots.
Woodhouse has a very odd definition of “support.”
