The League opposes legislation to require voter ID at the polls.
LWV Charlotte Mecklenburg sent a letter to the Charlotte Observer in opposition to the proposed voter ID legislation. We understand that the legislature is planning to move ahead with this legislation. Now is a good time for interested Local Leagues to be getting articles into their newspapers.

What’s happening now? Working closely with a coalition of groups interested in campaign reform, we continue to advance legislation that provides for freer elections. North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections has produced a Legislative Scorecard every year since 2006, showing how legislators across the state voted on campaign reform bills. Know how your legislator voted. If you would like to get involved in working for election reform in NC, please contact Louise Romanow at
