Democrats in North Carolina Senate Vote Against Bill That Delivers Free Voter IDs to People’s Homes

For Immediate Release

Raleigh, NC - Yesterday, every single Democrat in the North Carolina Senate voted against expanding voter access.

Republicans created Senate Bill 724 as a solution to address Democrat concerns that voter ID is inaccessible to certain groups of voters. The bill had three provisions:

1. Makes accommodations for blind voters who have difficulty with ballot access
2. Makes online voter registration law
3. Allows for free photo voter IDs to be delivered straight to people’s homes

“The inexplicable decision by Democrats to vote against a bill that provides free voter ID to North Carolinians’ doorsteps tells us one thing: Democrats have no desire to run lawful, accountable elections,” said NCGOP Press Secretary Livy Polen. “Election integrity is the cornerstone of American democracy and a top priority for the NCGOP. The North Carolina media has an unconditional responsibility to ask Democrat legislators how free, accessible voter ID to all voters is a policy antithetical to their goals.”
