Early Voting http://whqr.org en Civil Rights Groups Sue in Response to NC Voter ID Bill's Changes to Early Voting http://whqr.org/post/civil-rights-groups-sue-response-nc-voter-id-bills-changes-early-voting <p>Since Governor McCrory signed the Voter ID Bill into law on Monday, three civil rights groups have filed lawsuits. They challenge new requirements for state-issued IDs, elimination of same-day registration--and an early voting period that will be shortened by seven days. Critics of the bill say the latter in particular will cut off voting opportunities for hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians—particularly minorities. About 64 percent of New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender County citizens voted early in the 2012 election.</p> Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:47:37 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 41572 at http://whqr.org Civil Rights Groups Sue in Response to NC Voter ID Bill's Changes to Early Voting Email urges voters to call NHC Board of Elections for Early Voting site on UNCW Campus http://whqr.org/post/email-urges-voters-call-nhc-board-elections-early-voting-site-uncw-campus <p>An email making the rounds is urging voters to call the New Hanover County Board of Elections and ask for an Early Voting Site on the UNCW campus.&nbsp; Mon, 20 Aug 2012 09:00:00 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 22510 at http://whqr.org Email urges voters to call NHC Board of Elections for Early Voting site on UNCW Campus
