looks like a voter suppression wet dream, now that they are freed from the bondage of the VRA..
Which elements in particular do you find suppress anyone's ability to vote?
The only one in there that even makes me raise my eyebrows is eliminating "straight ticket voting". Is there like a box you can check that says "I'm voting for only this party" in NC, that they want to get rid of? Straight ticket is something you just... do.
We are secretly trying to reduce the democrat voters in this state, hopefully over the next 10 years we can get rid of them entirely, like Texas did.
This was predicable.
Yes, predictably misguided. Where's the voter suppression? Looks more like what all states should do, except I'd make the early voting period 5 days long instead of 10.
It being required of all voters not just dems, so what's unfair about it?
No suppression at all, unless you think proving who you are is suppression. :no:
For 80 years, the corrupt liberals ran NC like their own personal fiefdom, rewarding their friends and themselves, installing an immoral progressive income tax on the hard working private workers, rewarding the bloated state employee posse with 56% of their income pensions and COLAs, redistricting to guarantee liberal dominance, opening early voting to predominately black precients, etc.
Want fairness? Vote Republican.
Aren't the people of NC debating eliminating their state income tax? Do they have one, or am I thinking of another state?
What other reason is there to pass laws like this?
So that people that are NC resident/citizens vote once and only once.
Laws that ensure folks only vote once or request ID isn't the issue.....you can't deny these laws go a lot further and aren't designed with simply ensuring every citizen only votes once.
Point out one part of that voting bill that suppresses voting?
The last is the scariest one....it permits precinct watchers to roam in the effort to intimidate minority voters.
....it permits precinct watchers to roam in the effort to intimidate minority voters.
You mean like the black panthers have been known to do?
What it allows is for snyone to report someone who is gaming the system, cheating, voting too many times.? Why is that bad? How is that intimidation UNLESS of course you want to cheat....
To suppress voters from voting multiple times. No other reason to pass this law.
Hopefully the Repubs will be able to vote twice. I voted several times last election cycle.
The current rate is 6% and then to 7.75% in three tiers.
In 2015, it will be 5.75% for all. A flat tax.
Fairness has been long overdue.
Don't you think it's possible to analyze voting trends of Democrats and Republicans and come to the conclusion that something like early voting or absentee voting benefits one party more than the other? If you think that is possible, then it isn't a great leap to figure how to craft laws that affect one party more than the other. Once that's done, the question is whether a law designed to result in less people voting, regardless of party, is a good law or not.
