North Carolina GOPers Push Bills To Limit Early Voting, Same-Day Registration

Republican lawmakers in North Carolina filed two bills to restrict early voting and same-day registration in the state, reported Thursday. 

Senate Bill 428, filed by Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, would cut the early voting period from two weeks to one and would eliminate same-day voter registration. 


House Bill 451, filed by Rep. Edgar Starnes, R-Caldwell, goes even further. In addition to cutting early voting and same-day registration, it would also outlaw early voting on Sunday and straight-ticket voting.
