RALEIGH - The General Assembly has approved election reforms that would require a photo ID at the polls, restrict early voting, and end same-day voter
registration.

Senator Jerry Tillman of Randolph County says the bill is intended to prevent voter fraud.

 

"We are trying to guarantee that your vote counts. And I don't think there are anything more important that we can do than my vote and your vote counts the way it was intended to count."

Critics say the measure would suppress the votes of minorities, students, and the elderly, who are more likely to vote early and less likely to have
photo identification.
