There’s a new push to veto North Carolina’s controversial voter ID bill. Attorney General Roy Cooper is stepping into the fight. He’s making one last effort to convince Gov. Pat McCrory not to sign it. McCrory has yet to sign that bill, but has said that he will. He could be doing that very soon. However, until that pen hits the paper, Cooper, who is a Democrat, hopes signatures on an online petition will change the governor’s mind. The bill would, among many things, require a photo ID at the polls, would make early voting days longer, but shorten the number of early voting days, and stop same-day registration. “I sent the governor a letter telling him this was a bad idea,” said Cooper.
First, Cooper did it in a letter, and soon in an online petition. “This is just another way people can be heard,” said Cooper.
… That petition is still in its beginning stages, but it’s on change.org.
Cooper says he’s hoping for as many signatures as it takes to convince McCrory to veto the bill.
