North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley released the following statement:
"A three-judge panel suspended NC's Voter ID requirements, invalidating the votes of more than 2 million North Carolinians who voted for a constitutional amendment in 2018. The opinion, issued by the North Carolina Court of Appeals, ignores the fact that more than 30 other states have enacted similar laws which have been upheld by federal courts. An overwhelming percentage of North Carolinians of every demographic support voter ID and we are very disappointed to see a panel made up of three Democratic judges overturning their votes by judicial fiat."
