Lt. Governor Calls on AG Stein and Gov. Cooper's Election Board to Defend Voter ID Law

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Lt. Governor Forest releases the following statement:

    "The people of North Carolina spoke clearly when we added voter ID to the state constitution: We've had enough chaos and doubt in our elections. Activist Democrat judges must stop this cycle of last-minute changes that erode faith in the democratic process.

    We hope Attorney General Josh Stein and Governor Cooper's Election Board will uphold their oaths to the Constitution and laws of North Carolina and oppose this federal judge's ruling."
