RALEIGH, N.C. —
North Carolina House Republicans are drafting a bill that would require each voter to present a photo ID before casting a ballot. Democrats are blasting the measure, claiming voter suppression, but Republicans insist it will protect the integrity of elections. "Everyone that wants to vote is entitled to vote, we will do everything we can in reaching out to them to make sure that they get the ID that they need," said Rep. Davis Lewis. "The only thing I can tell Republicans is forget it. I mean, seriously, you're disenfranchising a half-million people," said Rep. Mickey Michaux. The Board of Elections estimates that of more than 600,000 voters in North Carolina, over half of them are Democrats and a third are black.
