North Carolina governor vetoes latest voter ID legislation

Cooper has repeatedly opposed voter ID legislation over the years, saying it was unnecessary and would prevent many poor and minority citizens from exercising their right to cast ballots. He vetoed the measure even though more than 55 percent of voters approved a constitutional amendment last month requiring in-person voter photo ID.

“Requiring photo IDs for in-person voting is a solution in search of a problem,” Cooper said in a statement.

“Instead, the real election problem is votes harvested illegally through absentee ballots, which this proposal fails to fix,” he said.
