Same-day voting

NC law allows people to walk in to an early-voting booth, register to vote and cast a vote without showing any proof of identification. All they need is something that looks like a utility bill with the voter's name and address on it. In an era where people are regularly using software to forge checks, we can rest assured that NOBODY would fake a utility bill! After all, the process of voting is too sacred for anybody to cheat at it. Please call your legislator and ask him/her why we can't move out of the Jim Crow era and install safeguards that reflect the changes in technology that demand positive voter identification as a simple safeguard. They need to override SB 351 now!
