Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization, which encourages informed and active participation in government. It does not support candidates or political parties. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
In July 2013, North Carolina lawmakers passed the Voter Information Verification Act, known more commonly as voter ID. It's a controversial law that was ultimately struck down in federal court for being unconstitutional. Nearly four years later, state legislators are now working on another voter ID bill that would be taken to voters as a constitutional amendment, according to sources.

Republicans widely support voter ID, and Democrats - making up a small minority - would likely not be needed to approve a measure.
