This year a new state law will protect your ballot by requiring voters to show government-issued, photo identification to cast a ballot. But some groups are still fighting this important reform. The League of Women Voters is one of them, and it has filed suit in federal court against photo ID, a case which is still pending as of this writing.
But the League is also sponsoring political debates. Why are candidates supporting these events, when they are sponsored by a group opposing commonsense election reform? Sign this petition, and tell candidates not to support the League of Women Voters as long as it continues its ill-advised opposition to election reform in North Carolina.
No Debate Sponsored by Opponents of Voter Photo ID!
One of the main groups suing the state of North Carolina over the new law required voter photo-identification cards is the League of Women Voters of North Carolina. Their suit is still active in U.S. District Court. But now the League of Women Voters is sponsoring 2016 political debates. Sign this petition and tell candidates to refuse to appear in any debates sponsored by an organization that opposes requiring photo ID to vote, a commonsense idea North Carolinians support. "I urge all North Carolina candidates to shun League of Women Voters debates while it opposes voter photo-ID cards.
