PRICE STATEMENT ON APPEALS COURT VOTER ID DECISION

July 29, 2016
Press Release

Raleigh, NC –Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement praising today’s federal appeals court decision striking down North Carolina’s Voter ID, same-day registration, and early voting restrictions.

“The most basic principle of our participatory democracy is that all Americans have the right to cast a vote. The North Carolina General Assembly and Governor McCrory violated that principle by enacting discriminatory voting restrictions; in doing so, they disregarded the hard lessons that our country learned in the long struggle for voting equality and civil rights. I am pleased today’s decision reverses this shameful legislation and restores the unimpeded right to vote for all North Carolinians.”
