Watch Gov. McCrory Defend North Carolina’s Voter ID Law:
“It is a trampling on the blood, sweat and tears of the martyrs — black and white — who fought for voting rights in this country,” the Rev. William Barber, president of the state chapter of the NAACP told the Associated Press. “It puts McCrory on the wrong side of history.”
Not to mention, there are only a handful of documented cases of in-person voter fraud.
ABC News reports that “out of the 197 million votes cast for federal candidates between 2002 and 2005, only 40 voters were indicted for voter fraud, according to a Department of Justice study outlined during a 2006 Congressional hearing. Only 26 of those cases, or about .00000013 percent of the votes cast, resulted in convictions or guilty pleas.”
